Each year a distinguished group of leaders from the public, private, and non-profit sectors is invited to become part of the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs community. Throughout the year Senior Fellows present policy briefings, guest lecture in classes, and participate in School events. 

 “These Senior Fellows represent a bridge connecting our problem-solving academic departments of Public Policy, Social Welfare, and Urban Planning to the real world challenges being faced by civic leaders at the local, regional, and national levels,” said Dean Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr.

In addition, Luskin students have the unique opportunity to spend time with the Senior Fellows at their place of work, giving our students a true insider’s view of what these fellows do and how they lead.
