Welcome to the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences at UCR!


On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students from the College of Natural & Agricultural Sciences at UC Riverside, I welcome you to our college and campus in the heart of the Inland Empire of Southern California.
CNAS is unique within the University of California system in housing departments that cover the breadth of science — agricultural, life, and physical sciences. Our college is renowned for providing students the opportunity to participate in research projects in our laboratories where you will work side-by-side with our faculty, their students, and staff. Our college offers a wide choice of research projects on the compelling issues of our time and the opportunities to help solve them.
As you enter our classrooms, please take the opportunity to engage with our faculty both in the material they present during lectures and teaching laboratories, and in their own research. You can and will make a difference!
