About the UCI-OC Alliance
The mission of the UCI-OC Alliance is to advance UC Irvine as a Latino/a-thriving university through engaging and supporting Latino/a students, faculty and staff. Established in 2021, the UCI-OC Alliance supports UC Irvine as a Hispanic-thriving university. The UCI-OC Alliance serves Orange County by connecting local leaders and businesses with UC Irvine to advance Latino/a students through:
- Program support
- Corporate partnerships
- Special events and initiatives
- Networking opportunities
UC Irvine has more than 135 programs that support Latino/a students.
Serving Orange County, this trustee-guided, university-driven community organization is facilitated by University Advancement and Alumni Relations.
The UCI-OC Alliance advances its purpose through communication, collaboration and engagement with the university administration and support groups as well as participation in and active support of Latino/a events and programs on campus.
In 2022, in collaboration with the Latinx Resource Center and the Center for Educational Partnerships, the UCI-OC Alliance helped launch the UCI LatinX Resources Database, cataloging in one place more than 135 services, programs and resources at UC Irvine dedicated to enhancing the Latino/a student experience, including outreach efforts, academic initiatives and retention programs.
