For Faculty

Faculty and staff collaborate with the interdisciplinary Luskin Center. Luskin Center Scholars and  Executive Committee members -- intellectual and administrative leaders at UCLA -- identify external opportunities and address research needs for civic leaders who use the research to inform policy and organizational innovations. The Luskin Center also hosts Visiting Scholars from throughout the world who have been selected for their expertise in an area relevant to our ongoing initiatives. 

The Luskin Center serves as a resource for faculty members and staff, as well as a portal between the academic world and the greater Los Angeles community. The links provided below were selected to enhance faculty members' access to information and opportunities related to environmental sustainability and community engagement.
