Meet The Chair


Introducing Linda Peterson

Dear Supporters of UC Santa Cruz,

As a proud 1970 alumna of UC Santa Cruz, I am honored for the opportunity to serve as the Board Chair of the UC Santa Cruz Foundation for the next two years.    

For almost 50 years, Trustees have partnered with the University leadership to advance the goals of the University and help it raise and steward philanthropic funds. As volunteer leaders, the Foundation Trustees devote their time, wisdom, and personal financial support to benefit the University.
