Campus Gets $2.2 Million From State to Expand Entrepreneurial Reach

UC Merced’s share of $22 million in state funds through Assembly Bill 2664 will help the campus fulfill some of its primary goals: transforming the region economically and providing people with greater opportunity.

Each of the 10 UC campuses is receiving $2.2 million in one-time funding from AB 2664, the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Expansion, signed by Gov. Jerry Brown last fall.

Campus's Economic Impact in Valley Grows to $1.27 Billion

The University of California, Merced, directly invested nearly $170 million in the San Joaquin Valley economy over the past 12 months, according to the university’s annual Economic Impact Report released today (Oct. 13).

Regional investments since the campus began start-up operations in July 2000 now total $1.27 billion, the university reported. Statewide, UC Merced’s economic impact over the past 12 months amounted to $223 million, bringing its cumulative total to more than $2.4 billion.
