Community Partnerships and the Office of Government & Community Relations
The programs and resources listed on this site have a wide variety of campus sponsors, UCLA Government and Community Relations has gathered and published many of our campus-based initiatives that offer free services to the community. Assembling over 250 programs and over 1,000 community partners throughout the Southland, we invite you to explore UCLA’s community footprint in the greater Los Angeles region. We seek to amplify the numerous ways in which our students, staff and faculty contribute to improving the lives and livelihoods of our communities every day.
As you navigate the website you can search by keyword or program name, apply filters that highlight programs by category, campus departments, legislative districts and partner types such as schools, community centers, parks, health clinics and so much more. Whether you seek to discover the “big picture” or find out specifics about a particular location, UCLA’s impact can be demonstrated in a multitude of ways.
We expect this comprehensive database and its snapshots of individual programs to be useful in many ways.
- Community groups can find potential partners, sponsors and funding.
- A customized resource for local, state and federal government officials and staff to view programs by district, and see how specific constituents benefit.
- Individuals and groups on campus can discover related efforts and interests, enabling them to avoid duplication and pool resources.
