This March, UCLA recognizes the trailblazers and groundbreakers for Women’s History
Month. We salute women who forged ahead in diverse disciplines—from economics to
acting to athletics—and overcame challenges to become firsts in their chosen fields.
For many, their journey began at UCLA, where they discovered the passion that became
their life’s work. We celebrate these inspiring women who are creating pathways
for future generations.
On Saturday, May 18, Alumni Day will return to campus amid the
joyful celebration of 100 years of Bruin achievement. Come back to visit familiar
places and explore all that is new, as we honor the history and legacy of our university.
