Chicanx Latinx Alumni Council

The UC San Diego Chicanx Latinx Alumni Council is to positively represent the university's Chicanx Latinx alumni community and foster a sense of connection among alumni and current Chicanx Latinx students at UC San Diego.


The Council assists students in achieving academic and social success. CLAC supports student outreach, recruitment, and retention efforts. It works closely with UC San Diego to raise funds for the Madrinas and Padrinos Scholarship Fund to award student scholarships and plan social programs on campus and in the community to support UC system-wide efforts to strengthen alumni engagement.
