Federation for A Competitive Economy


The Face Initiative at UCR

The Inland Empire (Riverside and San Bernardino Counties) lags behind much of California and the nation in terms of economic development, educational attainment and overall quality of life. As an integral part of the regional infrastructure, UCR and the campus community are actively working to be a part of the solution by taking advantage of and building on the Inland Empire’s strengths. In 2009, FACE (Federation for A Competitive Economy) was established with the mission of creating an intellectual climate in the Inland Empire that promotes and improves educational opportunities for ALL students, significantly benefiting the economy whose prosperity depends on a well-trained workforce. FACE, a community-education partnership, is focused on creating systemic change through collaboration with business, education and civic partners.
