Student volunteer planting in the garden
How do you engage a student body in solving regional and global issues? You partner with leaders in environmental and social improvement.

Through the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, UCLA connects, educates and encourages the upcoming generation of professional and scientific leaders to create a healthier planet, both on — and off — campus.

UCLA also offers a variety of programs for students to pick and choose how they want to get involved in the community. Interested in health improvement? Join the Mobile Clinic and learn how to treat the whole patient. Want to help the local community? Become a member of BruinCorps and tutor children in low-income areas of Los Angeles. Or work as a counselor at UCLA UniCamp.

Want to impact real-life issues like chronic unemployment, immigrant rights and wage theft? Join the students, faculty, workers and policymakers who come together in the UCLA Labor Center, dedicated to worker justice for more than 50 years.
