The campus has ready-to-use language (“boilerplate”) for a range of purposes. Sometimes the language is meant to help educate people who may not be all that familiar with UC Santa Cruz. Other times, the language is required by law.
The University of California, Santa Cruz, has earned a national reputation for challenging the status quo through its research, teaching, and public service, which are routinely cast through a lens of environmental stewardship and social justice. Reflecting California’s diverse culture, 16,000 undergraduate and 1,600 graduate students are drawn by the opportunity to pursue new ideas in world-class facilities nestled in a redwood forest with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and less than an hour from Silicon Valley. UC Santa Cruz has more than 120,000 Banana Slug alumni who embody the progressive and bold spirit of the campus. For more on UC Santa Cruz, visit ucsc.edu.
The following “boilerplate” copy should be included on every printed piece produced by the university. It’s usually tucked into an inconspicuous spot at the bottom of the back page, in small type.
