Fostering progress through collaboration & innovation

UC Forward is a philosophy, an idea, a re-imagining of what a university experience should be. It is a one-of-a-kind teaching, learning, and research initiative—pairing students and faculty with external experts, all from differing perspectives—to solve today's problems and develop tomorrow’s workforce in unique and relevant ways.

Design + Nursing Community Health Collaborative


Based in T2 research concepts, the Design+Nursing Community Health Collaborative initially focused on hospital based problems, but has moved from strictly institutionally-based projects, to those within communities. With stringent processes in place, students promote improved community health through an emphasis on prevention and the ultimate goals to make lives and living better.

Projects have included:

  • Bedside Buddy
  • Assistive Mobility
  • Chinese-American Youth Diabetes
  • Financial Elder Abuse
  • Head Protection
