From College Town to Urban Campus

Undergraduate education, internships, and community engagement in Sacramento

Quarter at Aggie Square is an academic program for undergraduates housed at UC Davis’s Sacramento campus. Even before Aggie Square opens the doors to new buildings, undergraduate programming will be offered beginning Fall 2020 in campus spaces. 

Unique to Quarter at Aggie Square, programming will on a topic of societal relevance. It will connect us with the Sacramento region in ways that lead to expanded and diverse partnerships that pertain to advances in human health and quality of life, as well as the pursuit of social equity. 

Students will work across multiple disciplines on our urban campus. Our initial offerings focus on health and educational equity, and leveraging the health campus to inform biomedical engineering. 

In the spirit of the Washington Program and Study Abroad, students will study with a cohort, taking all of their courses for the quarter in Sacramento, holding local internships, attending public lectures, and engaging with the regional community.

Quarter at Aggie Square is a unit of the Office of Undergraduate Education.
