Whether you know it or not, the University of California has probably played a part in your day — from the batteries developed for the hybrid car you drive, research that helped grow the fruits and vegetables you eat, or friends and family members that may have attended or work at one of the world-class UC campuses, national labs, or life-saving medical centers.
And Cisco’s connections with UC run deep. According to LinkedIn, nearly 5,100 Cisco employees have a UC degree.
The UC system has launched the Onward California tour to encourage thousands of passionate supporters to share why they think UC makes California better. The tour celebrates some great UC people and innovations, many of which may surprise you, and has some fun, interactive ways you can share your UC connections.
As a California-based company, we’re proud to host a stop and encourage our employees, regardless of where you went to college, to join UC staff in celebrating the collaboration.
UC’s Onward California Mobile Tour will be coming to Cisco’s San Jose Campus on September 17, 2012 in the parking lot between bldgs. 4 & 5 from 11 am – 2 pm. Come show your support for UC and for higher education in California, and get a free ice cream treat. We look forward to seeing you there!
