The Undergraduate Education Initiatives (UEI) unit collaborates with faculty and departments across the campus to design, implement, and promote innovative, interdisciplinary educational programs for all lower-division students at UCLA.
UEI also plays a key role in the "shared governance" process at UCLA through which faculty representatives and administrative leaders work together to develop and maintain curricula that serve over 25,000 undergraduate students. The unit provides analytical and administrative support to the College Faculty Executive Committee
and the General Education Governance Committee
, supports faculty advisory committees for each of the unit’s academic programs, and works closely with the Undergraduate Council of the Academic Senate on all matters of undergraduate education policy, programming, and oversight.How we are organized to meet our goal
