Developing world citizens through scholarship, leadership, and service.

Welcome to Eleanor Roosevelt College!

ERC welcomes students from every field of study, from human biology to art history and from electrical engineering to political science.  ERC is a distinctive neighborhood within a larger campus community.  

The defining theme of ERC is international understanding.  Through our core curriculum, Making of the Modern World, as well as co-curricular activities like the Global Marketplace, Culture Nights at International House, and alternative spring breaks held across the hemisphere, students at ERC explore their identities and commitments as global citizens.


UC San Diego Giving Day

Giving Day is Thursday, May 16, 2019 and Friday, May 17, 2019. 


 May 16-17, 2019

Our inaugural Giving Day will bring UC San Diego communities together for one unique giving period to create a collective impact. By combining our voices and highlighting our strengths, we can attract more attention, more support and continue our efforts to solve more of the world’s greatest challenges.

 Our campaign will last 1960 minutes in honor of our founding year – that’s 32 hours. The clock starts on May 16 at 6 a.m. and runs until 2 p.m. on May 17. Will you join us and make your gift?
