Message from the Dean

Here at UCLA  we are the engine for real-world advances in the physical sciences that positively affect our lives in so many ways. Our research serves as the basis for discovery and innovation, and stimulates our state, national and global economy in the process. Our world-class reputation for excellence in teaching and research is bolstered by collaboration all across campus among researchers in the life sciences, medicine and engineering. 

Maintaining UCLA's position as a world leader in the physical sciences is of the utmost importance in order to reap the benefits of our research and speed the pace of discovery, for the benefit of all of society. Yet state funding for UCLA continues its downward trend, and there is renewed urgency to invest in UCLA physical sciences.

I have identified four philanthropic priorities that, with your generous support, will enable us to expand the boundaries of knowledge and continue educating the most promising young scientists who will make the groundbreaking discoveries of tomorrow.

Your gift, regardless of its size, will have an impact, so I hope you will consider investing in the faculty, students and research of the UCLA Physical Sciences.

Thank you for your continued support.

Miguel A. Garcia-Garibay
