ASUCD Academic Affairs Commission
The Academic Affairs Commission is an advisory board to the ASUCD Senate on all academic matters at UC Davis and throughout the UC system. The nine student members and up to four alternates research, review, recommend, and develop projects to improve academic life for the student body. Working closely with the University Affairs Office, the commission ensures that students' concerns are voiced to the Senate as well as other university officials.
California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM)
To support and advance stem cell research and regenerative medicine under the highest ethical and medical standards for the discovery and development of cures, therapies, diagnostics and research technologies to relieve human suffering from chronic disease and injury.
California NanoSystems Institute
The California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) is an integrated research facility with locations at UCLA and UC Santa Barbara. Its mission is to encourage university collaboration with industry and to enable the rapid commercialization of discoveries in nanoscience and nannotechnology. CNSI members who are on the faculty at UCLA and UCSB represent a multi-disciplinary team of some of the world's preeminent scientists from the life and physical sciences, engineering, and medicine. The work conducted at the CNSI represents world-class expertise in four targeted areas of nanosystems-related research including Energy, Environment, Health-Medicine, and Information Technology.
Calit2's research unites faculty, students and technical professionals at UC San Diego and UC Irvine with private-sector partners and state or federal funding agencies to explore how emerging information technologies and telecommunications can transform arenas vital to the state's economy and our citizens' quality of life.
Department of Environmental Science and Policy
DESP researchers are helping to improve environmental policies, protect biodiversity, understand ecological processes, and foster an interdisciplinary perspective on environmental and natural resource issues.
When electrons or atoms or people interact, the behavior of the whole is different from that of its parts. We call that collective behavior emergent. Emergence thus refers to collective phenomena or behaviors in complex systems that do not exist in their individual parts; gateways to emergence are the regularities that characterize emergent behavior and the organizing principles that may be able to explain it.

In both science and society, developing an emergent perspective means a focus on identifying gateways to emergent system behavior. Because emerging global challenges have no unique cause, there can be no unique or even "best" response. An emergent strategy to address these therefore involves pursuing simultaneously many different partial solutions, with a focus on connections and synergies among these that can accelerate progress and lead to a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Institute for International Comparative and Area Studies
The Institute for International, Comparative, and Area Studies (IICAS) was created in 2001 to promote research on international, comparative, and cross regional topics.
