Our Mission

We strive to provide holistic and comprehensive support to our students through one-on-one advising, workshops and events that focus on academic and professional planning, inspire exploration of research, internship opportunities and experiences abroad. We are committed to fostering growth, enthusiasm and pride for our International Institute majors and minors in addition to empowering our students to draw connections between their UCLA experience and their personal and professional ambitions. Our ultimate goal is to encourage our students to make a positive impact in the world both during and after their college careers as informed and responsible global citizens.
