Anyone can be an AggieAdvocate.
You can stay involved with UC Davis with a minimal time commitment by becoming an AggieAdvocate
. AggieAdvocates are ambassadors for the university to our state and federal elected officials.
When public policy issues arise that significantly affect the campus (such as the state general fund budget) AggieAdvocates will send you an e-mail alert requesting your participation in writing letters or making phone calls to your elected representatives.
We will also keep you informed as issues related to UC move through the legislative process and invite you to events, town halls and forums.
AggieAdvocates may visit state legislators in their district offices to talk about UC Davis' impact on the region. And we encourage you to tell friends, neighbors and colleagues about the importance of the university in your life, your community and state. Currently, the state budget
and stable longterm funding for public higher education are key issues for UC and the UC Davis campus.
The now biennial UC Day legislative conference in Sacramento encourages selected alumni and friends from all ten UC campuses to visit the Capitol and meet with elected officials. Advocates also participate in the annual Joint Higher Education Day where advocates from all three segments of California public higher education make legislative visits and discuss the importance of public higher education.
Between dwindling state resources for public higher education and legislation that impacts the UC mission, the need for strong advocates is more important than ever.
Come on, join us. The University of, by, and for California, needs you.
