Community Input

Aggie Square benefits from consistent and candid input from our surrounding community. Part of that input comes from two formalized groups: the Community Engagement Advisory Committee (CEAC) and the Partnership Advisory Council (PAC). 

The CEAC includes representatives from area neighborhood associations, as well as community and business groups. The PAC includes elected officials and other civic leaders. 

UC Davis Sacramento Campus, home to UC Davis Health, has a track record of community engagement and support in Sacramento. We participate in, partner with or sponsor nearly 250 different community events and programs each year.

Additionally, members of the public are welcome to participate in public hearings and provide comments relevant to Aggie Square's review and approval by government agencies.  Notices of opportunities to comment will be posted on this website, and links are available below.

What is Aggie Square?

Aggie Square harnesses the power of UC Davis and its partners to create positive economic and social impact in Sacramento and beyond. Located on the UC Davis Sacramento Campus, home to UC Davis Health, Aggie Square will co-locate business partners and community-based programs with UC Davis innovation and research to create a stronger and healthier shared community. UC Davis innovation and entrepreneurship will foster partnerships in new technologies, new ways of advancing human health, new partnerships in lifelong learning and a stage set for new partnerships that cannot be imagined today. Aggie Square will also create a new kind of campus, a unique live/work/discover environment in which students, faculty, staff, business partners and community members interact, grow and thrive.

We welcome your input and participation. Email us at with questions, ideas or concerns. Subscribe to the Aggie Square newsletter (you can sign up on this website) for regular updates. 

How does the Aggie Square team engage the local community?

Our team connects constantly with community members. In addition to regular meetings with the Community Engagement Advisory Committee and the Partnership Advisory Council, we regularly attend neighborhood association meetings and other community events. For example, we attended an Oak Park Neighborhood Association meeting in January and provided written answers to submitted questions here. We hold regular "open house" meetings - all are welcome, and all topics are on the table.
