Our Collective Vision
United, we can:

Significantly expand our programs and presence through community, university, and philanthropically based events, creating a more connected and active base of alumni. As the largest academic unit on campus, with more than 50,000 alumni, 7,250 students, 13 undergraduate degree programs, 13 graduate programs, 9 departments, and 19 research institutions, UCI Social Sciences’ potential is boundaryless.

With an active alumni network, we can ensure our time on campus as students was only the beginning of a lifetime of learning and fulfilling relationships.

Our Combined Commitment
Together, we will:

  • Promote and attend homecoming, Lunar New Year, and other signature school events.
  • Support an active alumni network calendar of events, including UCI sports, family days, monthly coffees, and quarterly happy hours.
  • Foster positive growth of alumni in their careers and professional networks by acting as a good referral partner through meaningful introductions.
  • Understand the dean’s vision for the School of Social Sciences; remain informed on current initiatives, programming and opportunities; when appropriate, make connections that contribute to the fundraising efforts for the School of Social Sciences with potential partners.
  • Exemplify lifelong learning, championing the mission of the UCI Social Sciences within the community and new constituencies.
  • Encourage broad alumni participation in the #50for50 campaign—making a $50 annual donation to the Dean’s Excellence Fund—raising unrestricted funding for high impact projects within social sciences.
