Undergraduate Education Initiatives
Students at the University of California, Los Angeles must be strong, considering they’re carrying around enormous hearts of gold for their community. While over 200 student organizations regularly undertake service projects, the Center for Community Learning facilitates partnerships with nonprofits and government agencies seeking students for service-learning projects.
The UCLA Center for Community Learning has a new name.
As of November 10, the Center will be known as the UCLA Center for Community Engagement, reflecting the Center’s continued goal to connect UCLA students with community partners to provide both a learning experience for students and a benefit to the communities, locally and globally.
UCLA undergraduates will soon have the opportunity to gather primary source documents about California Indian dance, interview migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border, study emerging online platforms for community organizing, and other community research-based subjects.
