Welcome to the Bruin Family!

Hello Bruin Parents,

As you may know, being a Bruin parent and part of the UCLA family starts the moment your child accepts their admission offer and never ends!

We are proud Bruins for life, with three Bruin children—our youngest still here at UCLA. As co-chairs of the UCLA Parents’ Council, we can help connect you to UCLA. Just like your student, Bruin parents can also learn to navigate our beloved university and become more involved. Whether your interests lie in volunteering or financially supporting the university, you can help today’s students in countless ways.

Please reach out to our office if you would like to learn about how to make the most of your time at UCLA through giving back your time, talent and treasure.

The Office of Parent & Family Programs is here to keep you connected. You can reach the UCLA Fund parents team with any questions or send us an email.
