“…(UC Riverside Students are) as bright and engaged as any students I’ve taught at Harvard or Berkeley, and also determined to give back to their communities and their society. UCR has the energy of an underdog that knows it’s winning the race that’s worth winning. I wish we could clone UCR all over America.”

U.S. Secretary of Labor, Best-selling author)
