Executive Communications and Engagement

We help convey the value and impact of the University of California.

Executive Communications and Engagement functions as the UC president’s chief speechwriting team and develops and executes strategic public engagement opportunities on the president’s behalf that promote institutional priorities. The team also helps the UC president manage relationships with strategic groups and constituencies and provides the president with briefing, advance, and event staffing support.
