GET INVOLVED
Volunteer advocacy is at the core of UCLA's Government Relations Program. Working closely with the UCLA Alumni Association, the UCLA Government Relations Program is committed to incorporating volunteer advocates into every phase of Government Relations programming, including planning, implementation and the review of program activities. Among the key advocacy programs are:

BRUIN CAUCUS
Bruin Caucus members, currently more than 1,400, are asked to contact elected officeholders and other government officials to advance the mission of UC and UCLA, often in support of state and federal funding of UC programs. Bruin Caucus seeks to inform and educate a broad base of supporters through periodic mailings and a quarterly newsletter.

DISTRICT OFFICE OUTREACH
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.).

LEGISLATOR 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.
