Over the last year, UC San Deigo has re-focused their mobile strategy around a web implementation based on a desire for greater flexibility, control and the ability to leverage a distributed group of technologists across their campus. In fall 2010, UCSD conducated an in-depth study, evaluation and eventual cook-off between available mobile web frameworks. From this selection process, the UCLA Mobile Web Framework was chosen as the best framework to meet their campus requirements.

Since then, UC San Deigo has deployed the MWF and developed a substantial mobile presence powered by it. Beginning in the first quarter of 2011, the campus web office overhauled their existing mobile presence with the MWF, and then they moved forward to develop a whole suite of new tools. Their mobile campus offering now includes a plethora of apps including emergency notices, course listings, lecture podcasts, geo-aware maps, and a mobile version of "My TritonLink", while includes student-focused billing and balance information, notices, and more.

UC San Diego has also become an active contributor to the MWF initiative. Beyond helping guide its overall direction and strategy, they teamed up with UC Los Angeles to develop the Forms and Messages API specifications that will go into MWF 1.3, and they're taking up the lead role in developing these features. They also contributed the first native wrapper of the MWF and have been exploring numerous ways to improve framework UI.
