One of CREATE's central objectives is to develop collaborative relations with local schools, districts, and community programs to enhance education opportunities in the San Diego region.

We consider all of our work at CREATE "partnership" work linking the local community and our campus.

We link campus partners to the region's schools, school districts, community organizations, and industry—and, we network local education innovators and campus partners to one another. CREATE supports all UC San Diego Divisions and departments, and several official UC San Diego school partnerships. We also link to hundreds of additional schools through ongoing systemic partnerships with the Vista Unified School District, San Diego Unified School District, Sweetwater Union High School District, and Chula Vista Elementary School District, in addition to partnerships with educators across San Diego County. Our CREATE STEM Success Initiative is our newest collective effort supporting education efforts across the San Diego region, linking programs off and on our campus to many hundreds of teachers and thousands of young people and families.

Our Partnerships Span the Region

With partners across campus and in the community, CREATE seeks to improve educational opportunity regionally. Our CREATE STEM Success Initiative is our newest collective effort linking campus colleagues to education efforts in the San Diego region.
