The National Center for Free Speech and Civic Engagement at the University of California is chaired by UC President Drake and governed by two advisory boards.
The National Advisory Board is responsible for providing guidance to the Center’s Executive Director and UC senior officials overseeing the work of the Center, to ensure that it is advancing its mission with high quality and high impact programming and activities. It is co-chaired by UC Berkeley Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky and UC Irvine Chancellor Howard Gillman.
The Academic Advisory Board includes professors representing a variety of disciplines across all ten UC campuses. They will assist in the creation of the Center’s project priorities and future selection of fellows. Members will serve as liaisons between their university and the fellow that is in residence for one week on their campus.
