UCR Magazine Winter 2017

UCR Magazine’s Winter issue is now online. Learn about why UCR’s goal of raising $300 million is crucial for campus growth. “Living the Promise: The Campaign for UC Riverside” is the first comprehensive fundraising campaign in UCR’s history, and the gifts will go to aiding student graduation rates, creating faculty support, funding research programs, and building new infrastructure around campus.

In this issue, professor Joseph Kahne — the inaugural Ted and Jo Dutton Endowed Presidential Chair for Education Policy and Politics in the Graduate School of Education — talks about educational policies in the digital age. Golf coach Mary Ritchie tells us why she thinks golf is a microcosm for life. You’ll also get to know EPIC, UCR’s new brain trust for inventors, and relive professor Stu Krieger’s experience at the University of California’s center in Washington, D.C.
