Invest in Changing Lives...GIVE TO STUDENT AFFAIRS
UCLA is a magnet that draws hundreds of thousands of students and scholars from around the world. Here they advance knowledge, create art, inspire children, save lives. They illuminate the past, shape the present and discover the future. They are yesterday's dreams and tomorrow's hope. They give life to big ideas. They leave the world a better place.
Shaping the young lives that pass through the university's door is no small task and an undertaking that the division of Student Affairs takes seriously. Our mission is to support the teaching, research, and the public service functions of the University by providing a variety of programs, services, and educational experiences which promote students’ academic success and enhance the quality of campus life. These programs and services are geared toward supporting the mental, social, and physical growth and development needs of our students in a healthy, safe, and intellectually challenging environment.
We envision a community where all students are inspired to explore their hopes and dreams and to achieve their full human potential through involvement in collaborative, innovative and results-oriented programs and services.
We accept the challenge to be creative, innovative, and collaborative in meeting the needs of our increasingly diverse student population. However, we need the support of our alumni, family, and friends to help to provide support through volunteerism, gifts, and endowments.
One such example of the ways in which your donations support our students is our commitment to students’ basic needs, and in the creation of a new basic needs center. Soon to be located in the UCLA Strathmore Building, the center will be dedicated to expanding access to vital basic needs services for all students — this includes emergency support for students experiencing financial and housing crises, expanding the Bruin Hub, enhancing food access programs, and delivering programming for greater financial well-being. The center will enable UCLA to deliver services even more effectively by heightening the visibility and awareness of the resources offered, reaching more students than ever.

Introducing...The Black Bruin Resource Center
The Black Bruin Resource Center (BBRC) will create programs and activities that facilitate recruiting a more diverse student body, retention efforts such as academic guidance and matriculation to graduation, graduate, and professional school. Also, the BBRC will provide space for Black students, faculty, staff, alumni to build community and celebrate the Black/African diaspora's various cultures to enhance the UCLA experiences for all.
The BBRC will serve the social and cultural needs of the campus's Black community. The BBRC addresses students' critical call for a safe, convening environment and creates space and opportunity for Black students and organizations to organize and engage in academic, social-cultural, leadership, community development, and networking activities. The BBRC will serve as a central hub that will foster exchanges with faculty, staff, alumni, and community stakeholders. The center is located Kerckhoff 106.
