Moving Science to Action
IoES starts with pioneering research and inspirational teaching. Then we put it to work. Teams of students tackle real-world problems at businesses and nonprofits, within communities, and in conjunction with government agencies.
These students act as agents for positive environmental change — communicating and engaging people at events beyond the university. Sustainability begins at home, but must aspire to impact the whole planet.
No other elite university matches UCLA in serving such a broad economic and cultural range of students. We prepare them to get out in the world and make a tangible difference.
