Clayton Garrison, founding dean of the School of Fine Arts at the University of California, Irvine, died July 27 at the age of 93. He was a visionary stage director, choreographer and theater professor who left a lasting imprint on UCI and what’s now known as the Claire Trevor School of the Arts.
Six University of California, Irvine assistant professors have been chosen from a highly competitive cohort to receive 2015-16 UCI Hellman Fellowships, which support research by junior faculty members who show great promise. Their projects focus on self-driving cars, economic instability at the U.S.-Mexico border and the production of carbon-neutral fuels, among other topics.
This year's commencement for UCI’s 50th graduating class will stretch over four days in the Bren Events Center, and 7,057 Anteaters will participate. Ten school-based events will be held, featuring addresses by renowned leaders in business, technology, athletics and law.
