In partnership with the UC Office of the President and UC Berkeley’s Office of Government and Community Relations, CAA is proud to announce that we have refocused our efforts on mobilizing alumni to advocate on behalf of the University through the Cal Advocacy program. Please join thousands of Cal alumni, students, staff, faculty, and parents in advocating for UC. Register today—the University needs your voice more than ever!
