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.

Introductory Experiences




Introductory UC Forward courses are collaborative learning experiences, in which students engage in constructive inquiry into a problem or set of issues usually brought by a client or user group. We find that in the real world, most hard problems have many factors, all interconnected, that demand multiple perspectives to deeply understand. When we collaborate with people whose skills and knowledge range complement our own, and when we know how to work together to create new ideas constructively, we can achieve  transformative breakthroughs.
