Civic EngagementFriends and Supporters

For the past 15 years, Carol Block, the wife of Chancellor Gene Block, has worked tirelessly to help foster a sense of community at UCLA and to advance the university’s interests locally and around the globe.

In her official position as associate of the chancellor, she plays a special role on campus, and she has approached her responsibilities with gusto, running a series of leadership luncheons for women staff and faculty, organizing student music recitals, supporting health and community service initiatives, and planning and hosting a wide variety of events for UCLA’s staff.

Block recently took some time to discuss the women who have inspired her, reflect on her time at UCLA and share her perspective on the importance of women’s voices in leadership.
