We will remember the 2020-21 fiscal year as the time when COVID-19 dominated the world stage, and as the moment the UCLA Alumni Association shifted into its highest gear to be there for UCLA’s Bruin community around the world.

Supporting the University’s half million alumni constituents, the Association amped up online offerings from career resources and wellness assets to safe spaces promoting justice and town halls sharing campus news and addressing vital health concerns. Traditional in-person celebrations transformed into virtual. We honored amazing UCLA alumni with an inspiring awards ceremony, applauded our graduating seniors as they joined the alumni family, and partnered with our network leaders to welcome our newest class of future alumni with virtual send-offs worldwide.

In the midst of this year, we launched the Bruin Promise … a campuswide initiative inspired by our Chancellor providing alumni with opportunities for continuing education and lifelong personal development. Because once a Bruin, always a Bruin.

Reimagining the Alumni Association’s mission to connect, inform, and support the Bruin family, this Annual Report highlights the impact of select programming curated from more than a thousand events and activities produced by Alumni Affairs this year. Whether on campus or on screen, your UCLA Alumni Association will always be just a visit, call, or click away.
