It is my great honor to serve as the Provost of Earl Warren College.  Warren’s faculty and staff work together to foster an engaging, safe, and academically challenging college experience for all our undergraduate students.

Warren College’s motto is “Toward a Life in Balance,” which means we are dedicated to cultivating responsible citizen scholars who will flourish during their careers at UC San Diego and beyond.  The College strives to instill in each student an understanding of the important contributions an individual can make in society.  This mission is supported by a number of critical components.  Our core freshman sequence comprises Warren Writing and Ethics and Society.  Our General Education requirements ensure that students will receive both breadth and depth in areas of study that complement the chosen major.  Our co-curricular activities promote the development of the "whole student."  Regardless of their major, Warren offers both resident and commuter students a diverse array of social, athletic, and cultural programs from which they can create a balanced and memorable college experience.

Earl Warren College is an exciting and welcoming place to study, live, and grow.  I am thrilled you are joining us and look forward to witnessing the mark you’ll make on our campus and on the world!

Sincerely yours,
Marisa Abrajano
Provost, Earl Warren College
