Ambassadors to the community supporting scholarships and academic programs.

Community Leaders Association (CLA) fosters community and business relationships with California Lutheran University, its faculty and students to enhance the university’s standing in accordance with its mission, vision and values. Members serve as ambassadors promoting university initiatives and providing networking opportunities through fundraising events. Since its inception in 1963, CLA has contributed more than $1.9 million to support Cal Lutheran’s academic programs and provide scholarships for deserving student leaders.
