Volunteers meet in a legislator's district office or at UCLA-affiliated
sites in the district to discuss issues of mutual interest to the
legislator and the university. Volunteers are assigned according
to their relationship to an individual legislator (i.e., a constituent,
contributor, acquaintance, etc.).
TO CAMPUS VISITS
Volunteers assist UCLA staff in hosting legislator visits to UCLA
to familiarize federal, state and local officeholders with the research,
instructional and public-service activities being conducted on campus.
The visits routinely include a meeting with the legislator and UCLA
administrators, faculty and volunteers, who are alumni, friends,
constituents or supporters of the legislator.
