The Division of Undergraduate Education serves as the campus-wide advocate for undergraduate education, providing leadership to achieve the highest quality of teaching and learning; it also promotes academic success for UCLA's diverse undergraduate population, ensuring options for all students to engage in a challenging array of educational opportunities, from foundational general education courses to advanced research and honors projects.

To meet its Mission, the Division of Undergraduate Education is guided by five major goals:

  1. To ensure standards of excellence across the undergraduate curriculum;
  2. To create and administer innovative academic programs that foster interdisciplinary study;
  3. To support a diverse population of undergraduate students in their pursuit of academic excellence;
  4. To assist faculty and graduate student instructors in the improvement and assessment of teaching and learning;
  5. To promote UCLA access and academic success for students across the State's increasingly diverse populations.

The Division sponsors major programs (listed in the left column); additionally, the Vice Provost works with foundations and donors to provide academic scholarships for students who enrich their educational experiences by participating in honors, research, academic advancement, and a variety of programs focused on preparation for graduate or professional studies.

I invite you to learn more about our programs by browsing through our web sites. We, in Undergraduate Education, are dedicated to excellence in undergraduate education at UCLA and hope that students will elect to participate in several of our programs, each designed with their success in mind.

Dean/Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education
