Although the Alumni Association of the University of California,
Santa Barbara was incorporated as a non-profit organization
in 1965, its history begins early in the twentieth century.
The first organized alumni effort recorded took place in February
of 1919. The total alumni body was then 600. An informal Alumni
Association thus existed, with volunteers organizing reunions
around athletic events and homecoming parades. In 1962, for
the first time, the University allocated funds in support
of the Alumni Relations Program. In September 1965, the UCSB
Alumni Association incorporated under the laws of California
as a non-profit, charitable organization and became the publisher
of the alumni publication which was then called UCSB Alumnus.
In 1969, the Alumni Vacation Center
opened on campus. In 1980, The Alumnus adopted a
magazine format and in 1981 was re-named CoastLines. Since
1982, membership in the Association has expanded from 6,000
members to more than 20,000 members. There are now regional
UCSB alumni programs all over the United States, as well
as several constituent groups. The Association offers its members
a broad range of activities, an extensive educational
travel program, as well as a full range of financial
and personal services.
