The UCSB Shoreliners is a campus support organization whose primary goal is
to promote social interaction throughout the university community and to
raise funds for UCSB student scholarships. Faculty members, researchers,
staff, general administrative officers and comparable visiting personnel at
the Santa Barbara campus and their spouses/partners, and interested community members are eligible for membership.
The Shoreliners, previously named the Faculty Women's Club of UCSB, was
established by wives of faculty on campus in 1941. Later they were joined
by female faculty members. In 2014, the Bylaws were revised and the club
renamed to reflect both male and female membership; the primary goal and a
number of the club's interest groups remained the same.
The UCSB Shoreliners is closely aligned with The Club at UCSB and many of
the Shoreliners events will take place there. Members of The Club are
welcome and invited to attend Shoreliners events:
