150 Years of Light

Years of
One of Abraham Lincoln’s lasting legacies — using land proceeds to establish new schools — gave life to our nation’s educational system. On March 23, 1868, the University of California was born. And Berkeley, its first campus, is today the most distinguished public university in the history of higher education. Guided by the motto Fiat Lux, our duty is to bring new knowledge to light … to illuminate solutions for bettering the human condition … to be a beacon of opportunity for promising young minds and top faculty. Throughout 2018, let’s celebrate 150 years of light — and project that light forward for another 150 years.
