Youth Voice

If we’re to live up to our own time,

then victory won’t lie in the blade, but in all the bridges we’ve made.

That is the promise to glade, the hill we climb, if only we dare.

It’s because being American is more than a pride we inherit.

It’s the past we step into and how we repair it.

-Amanda Gorman reciting “The Hill We Climb”


Dear CRC Community,

Special Announcement from the Faculty Director


Dear Colleagues,

For the past 15 years, directing the Center for Regional Change has been a singular passion and honor. In that time we built the organization into a leader in action-oriented research and engagement on issues of social, racial, economic and environmental justice. We have informed regional and state policies related to youth health and well-being, drinking water, cumulative environmental hazards, transportation, housing, and economic development and helped transform UC Davis into a center of excellence on engaged scholarship.

The Center for Regional Change maintains a mission of supporting healthy, equitable, prosperous, and sustainable regions and communities. During this unprecedented time, we have the privilege to work alongside admirable partners who share our collective vision of a healthier California. Yet, challenges to our collective health continue to increase amid the global pandemic, entrenched racial inequities, statewide budget cuts, and increased demands on social infrastructures.

Spring Faculty Affiliates

During the Spring Quarter of 2020, the Center for Regional Change (CRC) hosted a series of virtual gatherings for current and prospective CRC Faculty Affiliates interested in discussing their research and possibly collaborating on future research on a variety of topics with other faculty and researchers affiliated with the CRC.
