Why Our Support Matters

Westwood is home to not just to a world-class university, but to an ultra-modern hospital, a robust performing arts program, and athletic teams who’ve earned more NCAA championships than any other school in the country. Our students are actively engaged with the city. New discoveries emerge each day from our labs and libraries. And as a public institution, UCLA continues to serve California’s diverse population, bringing the best and brightest of tomorrow’s leaders to study on our campus.

Though we’re currently facing a challenging economic situation, we must not forget our greatest asset: the people connected to this University. Alumni and friends alike devote their time, talent, and resources to UCLA, creating an extraordinary convergence of scholarship, leadership, and research.  Together, we’re striving for excellence, building a brighter future for the University—and the world.
