VISION IS A FASCINATING CONCEPT. TO A SCIENTIST, IT ENCAPSULATES A PROCESS THAT GIVES LIGHT, SHAPE, AND COLOR TO THE WORLD AROUND US. TO A STRATEGIST, IT MARKS A GOAL, A PLAN OF ACTION TOWARD AN ASPIRATIONAL FUTURE.
As both scientists and strategists in the UC Irvine School of Social Sciences, the meanings merge in our bold vision for a more brilliant future for the state of California, the country, and the world. A future that gives structure to scientific breakthroughs that may one day halt brain disease and communication disorders. A future that celebrates and supports the complex human diversity of our boundaryless planet. A future that sheds light on emerging conflicts affecting citizens around the globe in hopes of bringing about peaceful exchange.
