The UC Advocacy Network (UCAN) is a community of people who speak out on behalf of UC and its state and federal priorities to help it advance its mission of education, research, health care and public service. 

As a member of UCAN, you are part of a powerful community that includes tens of thousands of UC students, alumni, staff, faculty and friends who are shaping the future of the university and public higher education for millions of students.

Together, we speak out in Sacramento and Washington, D.C. about the importance of supporting our students and the university. With your help, we fight to: 

  • Ensure that UC can offer an affordable, high-quality college education for all students.
  • Secure funding for life-changing research on coronavirus, climate change and other important issues.
  • Protect access to affordable, excellent health care at UC’s top-rated medical centers. 
  • Stand up for UC’s most vulnerable students, including those from low-income, first-generation and immigrant backgrounds.
