Mission and History of the External Vice President

The External Vice President’s Office works to promote student advocacy on a local, statewide and national level in order to bring awareness to the importance of affordability, accessibility, quality, safety and diversity at UCI. The EVP serves as the student liaison to the UC Regents, local, state, and national elected officials and works to have student interests reflected in policy. We organize around tuition, worker solidarity, advancing human rights, voter education, and equity in the UC system. The EVP office hopes to address injustices and support advocacy work and legislation that further challenges the issues that students face.
