Earl Warren College was founded in 1974, as the fourth college at UC San Diego. It is named in honor of Earl Warren, former Chief Justice of the United States and the only three-term Governor of California. The Warren Court’s legacy of civil rights legislation, including Brown v. Board of Education and Hernandez v. Texas, which gave Mexican Americans the right to serve on juries, serves as a guiding inspiration to the College. The College emphasizes individual responsibility, informed judgment, and an awareness of ethical issues that inform contemporary society. Since its founding, the College witnessed a steady growth to approximately 4,100 students and is proud of its ethnically diverse student body, faculty, and staff.
