Welcome to External Relations

The Office of External Relations serves as the university’s lead advocate with elected officials, governmental staff, key community and business stakeholders to advance strategic university goals. External Relations also raises funds to advance the university's mission, creating relationships with individuals, corporations, and foundations to generate support for UC Merced students, faculty and programs. A major focus of the Office of External Relations is the formulation and implementation of strategic communications initiatives, fundraising programs, and signature events that showcase the newest and most innovative campus in the University of California System.

External Relations is comprised of several units, including: Alumni Relations, Government and Community Relations, Marketing, Philanthropy and Strategic Partnerships, Protocol and Special Events, and Public Relations.
