Twice each year, UCLA Luskin produces a series of stories to highlight our latest projects, publicize recent research advances and introduce our alumni and friends to the various personalities who make the School special. Those stories are collected in a printed magazine known as the Luskin Forum and also distributed via our website. Here is a snapshot of the most recent Luskin Forum.

Special Section

Who We Are

The current Luskin Forum includes a special series of essays written by staff members from Communications and our various research centers. It’s a snapshot of the people and projects that make UCLA Luskin such a vibrant, thought-provoking and entertaining place to be.
