Commitment to Innovation
We deliver dynamic programming to engage our global alumni community and connect us to each other and the university.
Since its founding in 1872, the Cal Alumni Association (CAA) has endeavored to advance and promote the interests of the University of California, Berkeley by connecting alumni with each other and our alma mater. We inform, engage, and inspire alumni to support the university by:
- Participating and volunteering in university and alumni activities
- Acting as ambassadors and advocates on behalf of the university
- Giving to the university
We will prioritize high-yield alumni engagement activities that serve and support our diverse and unique alumni community.
Make the Connection
We will serve as the hub that links alumni to each other and to the multiple facets of our alma mater.
We will forge coordinated, impactful relationships between the university and its alumni.
Work for the Future
We will be important partners in students’ success, lending our full support during key milestones in the student life cycle and creating networks that advance equity at Berkeley.
