Take a Stand. Become an Advocate.
UCR advocates are on a mission to engage supporters, expand resources, and illuminate the university’s goals and values. The university's advocacy network includes alumni, students, administrators, faculty, staff, parents, and friends who share an interest in elevating UCR's commitment to excellence.

You can also learn more about one of UC’s most important initiatives, Double the Pell, which strives to help students by asking legislators to double the maximum Pell Grant award.
Advocacy Day in Sacramento
March 8, 2022
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 virtually. You can help make a difference!
Note: We will host an in-person advocacy event in May 2022, more details to come.
