The UC Hastings Alumni Association has a Board of Governors with 50 members. The Board meets three times per year, usually on the same day as the Foundation Board. It coordinates outreach efforts for the College to alumni and students. The mission of the Alumni Association is to strengthen and nurture bonds between UC Hastings colleagues and the law school by providing outstanding opportunities for personal and professional growth. The Governors have an active partnership with ASUCH leadership to bring alumni mentors to student organizations and get together with students in small group outings. One example of this activity is “Six@Six:” an alumnus hosts six students at six p.m. for dinner.
Faculty and student input in decision-making is welcomed. The Chair of the Faculty Executive Committee, elected by the faculty on an annual basis, is invited to all meetings of the three Boards. The President of the Associated Students of UC Hastings (ASUCH) also is invited, and they participate in discussions. The Faculty Executive Committee and ASUCH representatives also meet regularly with the Chancellor & Dean. The Provost & Academic Dean appoints members to various faculty committees, and ASUCH selects representatives to most of the committees.
