An enduring mission.
A yearly journey.
Education anchors UCLA's excellence
In 2016, we welcomed over 12,000 new alumni to our ranks who earned UCLA degrees during the 2015-2016 school year. We admitted the most geographically, ethnically and racially diverse group of students in UCLA's history, and became the first university in the country to report a six-figure total for freshman applications.
Research embodies UCLA's optimism
With accomplishments in the last year such as reversing memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s for first time, it’s no surprise that UCLA received about $1 billion in competitively awarded grants to support approximately 6,000 funded research projects currently underway. UCLA researchers continue to embody optimism by innovating in all fields and pioneering new discoveries.
Service expresses UCLA’s values
2016 marked the eighth edition of UCLA’s Volunteer Day, where more than 7,000 UCLA volunteers provided almost $1 million worth of service at 50 locations. UCLA’s campus community remains committed to giving back.
