UEI is responsible for grant and contract management and fiscal services for University research and sponsored programs, and also provides fiscal services to University-related agencies and activities. UEI is the largest provider of student assistant employment opportunities in California. Both state agencies and private employers use California Intern Network as their primary source for student assistants.
UEI’s investment activity strengthens the campus by providing benefits that can’t be achieved with state funds. Examples include building purchases, federal research grants, and vital resources such as the Hornet Bookstore, Dining Services, and the Upper Eastside Lofts. In the last few years, UEI’s support of Sacramento State has led to millions of dollars for teaching and learning initiatives, as well as improved classroom space for students. These essential services and functions are provided in accordance with the goals of the CSU under an Operating Agreement with the university.
UEI is a nonprofit corporation governed by a board of directors in conformance with the appropriate State of California codes and policy directives of the Board of Trustees and the campus administration.
