On February 24–25, 2016 the UC Davis community convened to run a forecasting game about the future of UC Davis in the year 2026. The purpose of this game was to seek widespread community input as part of the University of the 21st Century Initiative.
Overall, players envision UC Davis as a well-connected leader in a global network of innovation and experimentation in the next decade. Over 2,400 students, faculty and staff participated to create over 28,000 ideas.
As a research university, UC Davis is viewed as a laboratory that tests and shares bold new ideas with the world. Players believe UC Davis has a great deal to contribute and share, and should continue to be a leader in education and research by adapting to serve the changing needs of students and faculty in the 21st century.
