The vision of UC Tech is to foster an inclusive and collaborative community of IT professionals that continually improves services that place the University of California system at the forefront of higher education, research, and patient care.
UC Tech began as a grass-roots effort by UC campuses to share common knowledge and information formerly known as the University of California Computing Services Conference, or simply UCCSC. The first "conference" was at UC Santa Cruz in 1982, and the focus was strictly on academic software and it was held in a conference room on campus with 21 people in attendance. Technologists from the UC campuses have met each summer since 1982 to discuss common issues and ideas associated with providing and supporting information technology services at the University of California. From humble beginnings, UCTech now broadened its scope and reach, bringing together about 700 IT professionals from across the University of California to share knowledge to better support our respective universities and the world-class UC system as a whole.
