Chancellor’s Priorities

As an urban research university with a public mission, UCLA is committed not only to maintaining high academic distinction, but also to addressing societal needs in the tradition of land-grant universities.

As UCLA moves toward our second century, we are guided by a singular goal: developing UCLA as the model research university for the 21st century.

To that end, Chancellor Block outlined four overarching priorities early in his tenure: academic excellence, civic engagement, diversity and financial security. These are the guiding principles of UCLA’s long-range academic plan, which is presented in full on the executive vice chancellor and provost’s website.
