In the Community

In the Community

The Office of Community and Government Relations works to provide opportunities for Orange County’s political, community, and business leaders to network with the University to gain support for and understanding of the connection between Orange County’s dynamic economy and its research institution.

At UCI, we endeavor to serve as a national leader and role model for community partnerships and public engagement. To get involved, please contact Amanda Hughes, Community Relations Manager, at hughesam@uci.edu or at 949-824-2887.

State Relations

State Relations

Whether through traditional advocacy or general education, UCI’s State Government Relations unit works to promote the mission of the University and to monitor state-related legislative activity. By actively engaging with the state’s elected leadership and agency heads, we are able to relate UCI’s important role in the state, while serving the broader mission of education, research, and service. Alumni, students, parents, faculty and staff are valuable “Anteater Advocates” in relating their experience relative to legislative action.


Federal Relations

Federal Relations

UCI’s Office of Federal Relations serves as the primary liaison between UC Irvine and Members of Congress, the White House, and federal agencies. Our charge is to build key relationships and generate federal support for broad campus research, educational, and public service initiatives.
