As a land-grant university, UC Davis is engaged in a mission of teaching, research and service for the greater public good. 

Committed to solving some of today’s most pressing challenges—locally and globally—UC Davis actively engages in contributing towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a set of ambitious goals, targets and indicators adopted by all UN member states in 2015, as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. 

The SDGs—which aim to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all—reflect a universal commitment to address issues that are critical to humankind at the local, regional, national and international levels. Many of the challenges that we face are common, interlinked, and increasingly, borderless. All 17 SDGs are being addressed by UC Davis experts across more than 100 countries.
