University Affairs represents and advocates for undergraduate students at the 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 motivates and encourages the student voice in various campus committees and advisory boards that affect student life. In addition to advocacy work, it strives to educate students on the processes and structures of the UC Regents and UCD administration.
