Advocacy @ The Beach

Advocacy @ The Beach brings together a network of volunteer alumni and friends with a commitment to higher education and CSULB. The volunteers (called Advocates) use their considerable power to influence the legislative process that impacts student access, success, and affordability. With the support of volunteers, higher education will continue to be a formidable backbone of the nation's economic prosperity that meets the needs of civil society.

Advocacy is the legal practice that individuals participate in order to influence elected officials to support public higher education.
