President Lyndon B. Johnson dedicated the campus in 1964. Fifty years later President Barack Obama spoke at UCI's 2014 commencement ceremony, held at Angel Stadium.

The satellite campus grew further in 1949 when a horse ranch in the neighboring city of Pomona, which had belonged to Will Keith Kellogg, was acquired from the University of California. Cal Poly Pomona, then known as Cal Poly Kellogg-Voorhis, and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo continued operations under a unified administrative control until they became independent from each other in 1966.

California School of Professional Psychology

IrvinePsychologyEthnic, Family Studies

The California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) was founded in 1969 by the California Psychological Association. It is part of Alliant International University. The original goal of CSPP, was to train doctoral level psychologists in professional practice models and to assure that its students and faculty were as diverse as California even then was. These goals were radical at the time in that most clinical psychologists were trained in research universities, were diverse in neither students nor faculty, and were being produced in very small numbers. At its founding (initially in San Francisco and then in Los Angeles) CSPP was neither WASC- or APA-accredited (as it ultimately became), worked out of borrowed or rented space with a volunteer (unpaid) faculty, but had a large number of student applicants who were attracted to the new training model.

The school has trained approximately half of the licensed psychologists in California. Today the school offers degree programs in clinical psychology, marriage and family therapy, clinical counseling, Organizational Psychology and psychopharmacology at campuses in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Fresno, Sacramento, Irvine, abroad in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Mexico City.

CSPP became accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) in 1977. By the mid-1980s all of its existing Clinical Psychology programs became accredited by the American Psychological Association and its Marriage and Family Therapy programs are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). Each psychology doctorate degree program (Ph.D. or Psy.D.) on each campus is accredited individually by the American Psychological Association.

The California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) was founded in 1969 under the auspices of the California Psychological Association. CSPP was the first free-standing school of professional psychology in the nation, and remains the largest non-profit professional psychology school in the nation. CSPP offers programs in Clinical Psychology and Marital and Family Therapy,Counseling, Industrial-Organizational Psychology, Consulting Psychology, Organizational Development, and Organizational Behavior.

The founding president of CSPP was Nick Cummings, PhD, who was succeeded by John O'Neill and subsequently by Judith Albino, PhD. (Mary Beth Kenkel, PhD and Rodney L. Lowman, PhD also served as interim presidents.) Under Dr. Albino's tenure CSPP was renamed Alliant University and the four separately accredited campuses in Fresno, Los Angeles,San Diego, and San Francisco were combined into a single WASC-accredited institution. The name was subsequently changed to Alliant International University after Alliant merged with (acquired the assets of) U.S. International University, based in San Diego. Today, CSPP is one of several schools that make up Alliant International University including a school of education, forensic psychology, a school of management and a law school. CSPP remains the largest of the schools.
