UCR Advocacy Day

UCR Advocacy Day
March 5-6, 2019 Sacramento, CA

At UCR Advocacy Day alumni, parents and friends 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 be able to join us. You can help make a difference!

Join fellow alumni and friends to meet with state legislators and other state officials on pressing issues for UCR.

Activities include:

  • Orientation and Issue Briefing
  • Living the Promise Reception with CA state legislators and other state officials featuring UCR Chancellor Kim Wilcox and Professor Ronald Loveridge
  • Meetings in small groups with state legislators at the State Capitol
  • Luncheon in State Capitol
