UCLA College honors 5 visionary supporters with centennial awards

AcademicFaculty and Staff

The awards were presented at a March 20 ceremony at Royce Hall honoring the College’s first 100 years and attended by the deans, Chancellor Gene Block, Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Darnell Hunt, and other academic leaders.

“The College of Letters and Science will always be the heart of UCLA,” Block said. “This is where the vast majority of our students reside; it’s home to more than three-quarters of our undergraduates. It’s the engine that drives forward our mission of education, research and service, built upon foundational commitments to rigorous teaching, exceptional research and community engagement.”

Speakers at the event included faculty, alumni, donors and friends representing the five UCLA College divisions — humanities, life sciences, physical sciences, social sciences and undergraduate education — who discussed the impact of the College’s four foundational pillars: teaching, research, service, and access and inclusion.
