UCSC – 50 Years Old Today!

“In these lovely surroundings will be built the University of California, Santa Cruz, a new kind of university campus powered by new ideas that are already attracting the attention of the academic world.” ~UC President Clark Kerr, April 17, 1964

On April 17, 1964, nearly 2,000 people gathered to witness the dedication of UC Santa Cruz—the UC system’s newest campus. UC President Clark Kerr was on hand, along with founding UCSC chancellor Dean McHenry, then-Gov. Edmund G. “Pat” Brown, state senators, city and county officials, and many UC Regents.
