Advocacy Day in Sacramento

March 7, 2023

Advocacy Day gives alumni, parents, and friends the opportunity to meet in small groups with elected officials to discuss issues affecting higher education and UCR in particular. No other group within the University community – faculty, administrators, or students – is as effective as alumni and parents in reaching public officials and promoting the needs of UCR and we hope you’ll join us. You can help make a difference!
