Governmental Relations


Become an Advocate in the UC Advocacy Network The UC Advocacy Network (UCAN) is a community of committed people who lend their voices to shape state and federal policies promoting the university's mission of education, research and public service. An incubator of invention and innovation and educator of tomorrow's workforce, the University of California is integral to the state's progress. UCAN is a group of engaged UC students, alumni, staff, faculty, parents and friends who are dedicated to ensuring the university's continued excellence.

Thousands strong, these dedicated advocates send letters and emails and call government officials and policymakers to let them know about the positive impact the university has had on them and others. Together, our collective actions help shape state and federal policies that advance the university and — through our commitment to education, research and public service — the state, the nation and the world.
