The UC Irvine Alumni Association strives to enrich the lives of alumni and engage them in a lifelong advancement of our university.

For more than 50 years, the UC Irvine Alumni Association has prioritized enriching the lives of alumni and engaging them in a lifelong advancement of our university. We have worked hard to become the hub and the home for more than 251,000 alumni in our Anteater family as our alumni base continues to grow – in size, diversity and location.

UCIAA is an integral piece to UC Irvine’s brilliant future by realizing the potential held by our alumni. We strive to open doors, generate ideas, support students and elevate UC Irvine with the power of the alumni community and their time, talent and treasure. UC Irvine is making a significant investment in alumni engagement and plan to deliver on its promise.
