The impact of the arts at UCI reaches far beyond our university’s walls.


The Institute and Museum of California Art is committed to providing public outreach to underserved K-12 students in the community. The New Swan Shakespeare Center is inspiring students and community members alike. Our student radio, KUCI, brings interesting interviews, music and events to loyal listeners across Orange County. And the Claire Trevor School of the Arts (CTSA) fosters a vibrant community of students committed to creative research and the study of Art, Dance, Drama and Music.


Your gift – large or small – can ensure that the arts remain an essential part of a UCI education. Explore the areas below and make a gift that is meaningful to you.


Every gift counts.
