UCI is home to over 6,000 graduate students, approximately 3,000 faculty members and over 2,700 non-teaching academics. UCI is committed to groundbreaking research, evident in yielding three researchers who have won Nobel Prizes. UCI was also recently recognized as a Hispanic-serving institution (HSI) for 2017-2018 and is designated as an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-serving institution. Additionally, Financial Times ranked UCI’s Paul Merage School of Business 1st in employing the highest percentage of female faculty.
