Welcome, Social Sciences Alumni!

We are a powerful network with the largest number of alumni of all the schools at UC San Diego. However, success is not measured by numbers alone - we are most proud of the variety of areas in which our alumni make a difference and lead fulfilling lives in academia, private industry, public service and nonprofit organizations.

We are eager to connect our alumni with the campus, students and faculty through cutting-edge programs and engagement opportunities showcasing the many highly-ranked departments and the global, national and local impact of fellow alumni. Suggestions and feedback regarding our programs are always welcome.

For questions, please contact Nate Wilbanks ’18, Director of Alumni Engagement, at or 858-822-2490
