My passion for this Big Idea

"I envision Aggie Launch as a way to revolutionize how American public universities prepare students for the modern world of work. One of our primary missions is to equip students to launch fulfilling careers after they complete their educations. As a proud UC Davis leader, I can think of no higher purpose – and yet there has been no comprehensive, universitywide model to prepare students for their careers.

“We’ll ensure that UC Davis continues to produce well-rounded, in-demand graduates who translate what they learn during their time here into careers that bring them success and satisfaction.”

Through Aggie Launch, we will establish such a model, enabling all students to hone competitive skills and build professional networks they can leverage after college. We’ll ensure that UC Davis continues to produce well-rounded, in-demand graduates who translate what they learn during their time here into careers that bring them success and satisfaction, driving economic growth and addressing society’s greatest needs, now and in the future."
