Before UCLA's Centennial Campaign comes to a close this month, help continue making a difference in the lives of alumni and students with a tax-deductible gift to sustain your Alumni Association.

Food Insecurity at UCLA

According to a 2018 survey, food insecurity affects an estimated 45% of all college students. In response to this pressing issue, UCLA's Community Programs Office Food Closet works to provide students with access to basic needs year-round. But as access to food is insecure, so is funding. UCLA's alumni board is stepping up to help and here's how you can too.

UCLA in the 1970s

The Seventies saw the continuation of the cultural and political revolution that began in the Sixties. With campus protests reaching a crescendo, major strides were made in diversity, equity and science. UCLA Athletics also reached new heights under Coach Wooden's record-breaking reign along with the expansion of women's sports.
