We advocate on behalf of the University of California to the federal government.

The University of California's Office of Federal Governmental Relations is located at the UC Washington Center in Washington, DC. As the largest public research institution in the world, the university engages in numerous partnerships with federal education, health care and research agencies. Working with Congress, the administration, federal agencies and national organizations, we advocate for the university and its policy and fiscal priorities in education, research, healthcare and public service.
