Revolutionize California's Future and your Own


As a world-class research university, UCR is playing a key role in the design and launch of the OASIS Hub. Its research excellence, expertise in clean energy and clean technology, and state-of-the-art laboratory facilities position the institution to attract, nurture, and facilitate the launch of innovative start-ups that will create high-paying jobs in the region. UCR is estimated to generate 20,000 regional jobs, and contributes $1.9 billion in statewide annual economic activity, $1.4 billion of which occurs in the Inland Empire.

A proud member of the world’s most prestigious public university system, and designated a Hispanic Serving Institution, UCR is one of the most diverse research universities in the nation. First generation scholars comprise more than half of its 26,000+ student population, and the campus is recognized as the nation’s leader in social mobility by U.S. News. In collaboration with regional universities and community colleges, UCR is deeply committed to ensuring educational access, student success, and workforce training for Inland Empire youth.

For OASIS Partners eager to catalyze and capitalize on the extraordinary potential of Inland Southern California’s burgeoning economy, key R&D, workforce development, sector-specific professional training, and investment opportunities abound, including:
