The Federal Government Relations (FGR) team will work with you and your staff members to strengthen your Department’s messaging for policymakers, coordinate our advocacy across campus, and maximize the impact of UCLA’s efforts at the Federal level. We encourage you to fill out this questionnaire so the Federal Government Relations team can help you better prepare and deliver your UCLA message to federal policymakers, as well as coordinate your involvement in federal advocacy efforts throughout the course of the year.

In the meantime, if you have already planned a trip to Washington, DC or are engaging in direct contact with Members of Congress or their staffs, please contact the FGR staff so they can support and enhance your efforts and provide you with timely policy updates.

*If you are planning to invite an elected official to speak or attend an event on campus, please submit the Visiting Dignitary Request Form to the Office of Special Events and Protocol. The FGR team can also work with you to host these visits.
