A $50-million gift from two generous UCLA alumni led to the renaming of the UCLA Meyer and Renee Luskin School of Public Affairs in 2011. Meyer Luskin, a Los Angeles business leader, and his wife Renee donated a total of $100 million to also fund the Luskin Conference Center, a hotel and meeting venue on campus.
Gifts at Work
Your support makes it possible for Luskin students to gain a lifelong professional network of peers and mentors who shape their career paths while they reshape the world. Many of our students aspire to professional lives – at home and abroad – in which they will work to improve quality of life and access to services and resources. Philanthropy helps students further their education and their reach by attending professional conferences, sharing broadly, and gaining valuable experience in high-level fellowships and internships.
In addition, when you support UCLA Luskin faculty through research funding and named faculty chairs, you help bring the most highly regarded and sought-after educators to the school to engage in work and research and to inspire and train our students. What they achieve together is called progress, and it helps people everywhere.
