Club Affiliate Program
The UCI Alumni Association (UCIAA) Club Affiliate Program is for registered campus organization (RCOs) interested in building and leveraging their alumni network to support professional development of their members. UCIAA strives to empower RCOs proactively and independently to connect and engage with alumni by providing applicable resources, training, and guidance. In exchange, club affiliates will further the mission of UCIAA by creating their own alumni programming and participating in UCIAA student events among other things.
The Alumni Association supports club affiliates in the following ways:
- Direct Access to UCIAA Staff: Alumni and Student Engagement Manager is available to meet with club affiliate members to provide guidance and discuss alumni engagement strategy
- Alumni Outreach Support: With advance notice, UCIAA can assist with identifying and/or contacting key alumni for your event or program
- Priority in the Student Alumni Engagement Sponsorship (SAES): Club affiliates who apply for funding from the Student Alumni Engagement Sponsorship (SAES) program will receive additional points during the application review process
- Publicity and Marketing: Submit an event request form to have your event added to the UCIAA’s events listing on their website
- Workshops and Resources: Access to UCIAA led workshops and resources to support alumni engagement efforts
- Event Partnership: With advance notice, the Alumni Association can partner on events that align with its mission
- Alumni Giveaways: Contact the Alumni and Student Engagement Manager to request alumni branded giveways to give to alumni participants
- Newkirk Alumni Center Room Reservations: Club affiliates can reserve rooms at the Newkirk Alumni Center for alumni-related events only. Room reservation fees are waived but additional fees such as after-hours staffing will be incurred to the club.
