Charge of the Office

The Office of the External Vice President for Local Affairs (EVPLA) acts as a group of liaisons and official Associated Student’s representatives to Isla Vista governmental agencies and the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors. In addition, the office serves as the intermediate between the County and community members.  A large part of the efforts of the office assist in creating alternative activities, cosponsoring groups, and communicating with the Isla Vista Community.


We reach out to the broad community, the University, elected officials, police departments, local groups, and individuals to realize our vision of inspiring a new wave of cooperation, collaboration, and sustainability. We do this by providing volunteer support services, informing Isla Vistans of their rights, and providing resources to improve access to basic needs.
