Government Relations

As part of the University Advancement team, the Office of Government and Community Relations coordinates the university’s legislative and advocacy efforts at the federal, state, and local levels.

Community Relations

This office also serves as the university's liaison to the broader community. We work with:

* Local business organizations
* Chambers of commerce
* Non-profit groups
* The community-at-large in the South Bay region and metropolitan Los Angeles County

As a liaison to these groups, we keep our community constituents informed about programs and activities at the university that would be beneficial or of interest to them, identify community needs, and explore avenues to provide university resources to meet those needs, creating partnerships between these organizations and the university.
