Create and grow with UCCI
The UCCI initiative is designed to support California educators who develop and teach innovative high school courses that allow students to gain workplace skills and insights while also fulfilling freshman admission requirements for UC and the California state universities. These courses combine the academic rigor of UC's "a-g" subject requirement with the technically demanding content of career technical education (CTE). Each course integrates the content of one "a-g" subject with that of one CTE career pathway.
UCCI offers this support in two major ways, through the UCCI Institutes and the UCCI Teacher Exchanges. Both programs operate on the philosophy that teachers are the curriculum experts, and both are free to participants.
The UCCI Institutes are held at various locations around California, based on the needs of specific high schools and districts. At the Institutes, teachers collaborate to develop the integrated courses that are needed to strengthen their course offerings. UCCI staff facilitate this work, ensuring the courses meet the criteria for UC approval in the "a-g" subjects. These free workshops are designed to give teachers the time and resources to create challenging and engaging integrated courses. Educators can submit a request for an Institute to be held near them by completing the UCCI Interest Form or simply by contacting the program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The UCCI Teacher Exchanges are dynamic curriculum workshops led by teachers, for teachers. The Exchanges provide teachers with the opportunity to prepare to teach any of the 68 UC-approved UCCI courses.
UC Curriculum Integration is an initiative of Student Affairs/High School Articulation in the UC Office of the President, with offices in Oakland, California. Its programs are made possible with funding administered by the California Department of Education.
