ABOUT THE SPACE
Designed To Foster Connections & Inspire Thought
No ivy. No tower. Park & Market is not a university extension in the traditional sense. Instead, the resources of a world-class public university are being made truly public—in a stunning space. Making it easier to connect and collaborate.
UC San Diego Park & Market brings people together who might not otherwise have crossed paths. These connections are multidisciplinary, boundary spanning, connecting art and science, culture and technology, civic engagement and lifelong learning, and much more. Park & Market provides new ways of seeing and doing things, and at the core, sustainable solutions to real-world problems such as public health, housing insecurity, and economic inequality.
Let UC San Diego Park & Market instigate your bold new ideas and collaborations. Advance enterprise, science, civility, innovation, minority businesses, and more. Encounter culture, art, music, theatre, and food from the San Diego & Baja region.
21st century thinking drives this new model of inclusive education. Our aim? To promote equity and a sustainable workforce and economy for our region. UC San Diego has assembled partners and programming, all to cultivate respectful, open dialogue and transformative action.
