University Description
The University of California was founded in 1868, born out of a vision in the State Constitution of a university that would "contribute even more than California's gold to the glory and happiness of advancing generations." University of California is founded when two institutions merge - the private College of California in Oakland, and a new state land-grant institution, the Agricultural, Mining and Mechanical Arts College. Leaders of the two institutions decide to join the two schools, Ernest Lawrence receives a Nobel Prize for his work on the cyclotron, becoming the first of 22 Berkeley faculty members to date to garner a Nobel Prize, and the first Nobelist at a public university.
