Timeline

The University of California began on a simple, but revolutionary idea: College should be available to everyone. That bold spirit has guided UC as it has grown from its seed at Berkeley to 10 campuses, five medical centers, and three national labs. UC’s history is packed with major discoveries, visionary people, and other milestones that cross campus boundaries and disciplines and have touched generations of humankind around the world.

A timeline created for UC’s 150th birthday in 2018 captures this rich history and encompasses the accomplishments of all 10 campuses — showing just how far we have come since March 23, 1868.
