alumni network


Half a century ago, the School of Social Sciences founders had a vision to bring together scholars whose different approaches - from quantitative to qualitative, formal to interpretative - would tackle fundamental research questions and pressing social problems.

Our alumni represent the realization of that vision. The Social Sciences Alumni Network encompasses all 45,000+ Anteaters who once called the UCI School of Social Sciences home. 

We hope that you will take an interest in learning more about the school’s priorities, ways you can connect with our students, and/or give back to the school so that you, too, can make a difference. 

“Our bonds as Anteaters are lifelong – I encourage you to play an active role in shaping UCI’s future and deepening your connection with our UCI community here and around the world,” says Larry Tenney, Alumni Network chair. “My life has been enriched by it – yours will be too!”

To get involved, visit our Alumni Network website or connect with Rosemarie Swatez,, directly.
