Chancellor's Club Welcome

Chancellor's Club

The Chancellor’s Club is a community of UC Irvine alumni, parents, faculty and friends who care deeply about this university and who have made a commitment to invest in its greatest needs. Established in 1972 by founding Chancellor, Daniel G. Aldrich, Jr, the purpose of Chancellor’s Club gifts are to support undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships and other areas of critical need as determined by the Chancellor. Support from Chancellor’s Club donors fuel our university’s excellence in academics, research and community service. In recognition of their steadfast generosity, Chancellor's Club donors enjoy a special relationship with campus leaders and receive invitations to events designed just for them.

Stories of Support

Chancellor’s Club memberships bring individuals into the inner circle of the University family while providing the Chancellor with the most important of unrestricted funds for scholarships and campus need.

I know that when I make my gift to the Chancellor’s Club, I am making an impact and supporting talented undergraduate and graduate students who have the potential to make a positive impact on our world.

When I talk to incoming students, I like to tell them that they shouldn't fall in love with UCI all at once, because UCI will keep giving them new reasons to love the place, probably for the rest of their lives. That's what Chancellor's Club has done for Carolyn and me over the years. Chancellor's Club reaches out to its members through its amazing programs and continually gives us new reasons to love and want to support the school. Rip 'Em Eaters!

One of the benefits of the Chancellors Club is the amount of networking opportunities. The Club consists of university and community leaders who bring to the table an enormous amount of experiences and global perspective. To be able to connect with individuals from different fields and disciplines has been remarkable.
