About University Relations

The people who make up the University Relations division elevate the reputation of UC Santa Cruz and build enduring relationships with alumni and campus friends. This work is essential for developing critically needed private gifts along with other forms of support benefiting students and research.

Every aspect of the division's work is done in support of a campus that is a jewel of the University of California system. Whether in a classroom or research setting, UC Santa Cruz people are renowned for the quality of their work, for doing the unexpected, and for challenging conventional thinking; in the process, they are changing the world.

University Relations is organized into eight units: Alumni Engagement, Communications & Marketing, Events, Government & Community Relations, Philanthropy, University Development Programs, Information Management, and Operations.
