Location

The University of California Humanities Research Institute (UCHRI) is a multicampus unit of the UC Office of the President. UCHRI is UC-system wide, serving all 10 campuses of the University of California. UCHRI was established by the 1987 UC President’s Humanities Initiative.

UCHRI is located on the UC Irvine campus, but is not within the UC Irvine system. The Institute’s location, however, allows it to interact closely with the Irvine campus, partnering on research projects, jointly sponsoring campus events, and collaborating with faculty.
