Rotary International is a global umbrella of passionate community leaders brought together in an effort to bring peace and understanding to the world. Rotaract Clubs are part of this effort at the college level, where our efforts start at the community level, but have no restrictions on its power in outreach services. Rotaract Clubs have access to the many resources of Rotary International, as well as the administrative support that help Rotaract Clubs thrive.

Just like many other chapters throughout various colleges, Rotaract of UC Irvine focuses on service, both locally and internationally, fellowship, and professional development. The club combines leadership and professional development with humanitarian service. Rotaract of UCI is sponsored by the Newport-Irvine Rotary Club. Its beginnings here on our UCI campus came in the Spring of 2009, when 50 Charter members were brought together under our slogan,“Service Above Self. Together, our mission is to bring change to the community and allow UCI students the opportunity to become more civically engaged, while growing as young professionals.
