University Affairs

The role of University Affairs is to ensure that undergraduate students are represented and advocated for at University level. It actively meets with faculty leadership, the administration of UC Davis, the UC Regents, the UC Office of the President, and students from other UC campuses to achieve this goal. It also motivates and encourages student voice in various campus committees and advisory boards that affect student life. In addition to advocacy work, it works to educate students on the processes and structures of the UC Regents and UCD administration.
