Ensuring all students can succeed at UCLA begins with building equity into the student experience and making sure that basic needs for housing, food, financial support, mental well-being and community are met.

That was the key message UCLA Chancellor Gene Block shared in a presentation during University of California Board of Regents May monthly meeting, held on campus at the UCLA Meyer and Renee Luskin Conference Center. The presentation outlined several current focus areas for UCLA, all aimed at enhancing the campus’s impact upon those it serves.

“At UCLA — like at all of the UC campuses — we measure our value by the positive influence we have on the state, nation and world … and by the effect we have on the lives of the students we serve,” Block said. “While we certainly strive to be excellent, UCLA’s greater focus is squarely on impact.”

UCLA strives to maximize its impact by making certain that all students — no matter their background or means — can take advantage of the opportunities UCLA offers and can graduate in a timely manner.
