UCLA began as a Teacher’s College in 1882, and we have been shaping and molding the knowledge sector in this country ever since. We develop future generations of scholars, teachers, information professionals, and institutional leaders. Our work is guided by the principles of individual responsibility and social justice, an ethic of caring, and commitment to the communities we serve.


Prepares students to be leaders in education research, policy and practice.


Seeks to define, study and evaluate interactions among people, information and information technology in a way that promotes equity, diversity, accountability and intellectual openness.


Groundbreaking research is more than a concept at Ed & IS — it’s a plan of action. Our nationally renowned research centers and institutes are doing fundamental work on what matters most in education and information studies in the 21st century: the discovery and application of usable knowledge at the crossroads of policy and practice.

Electronic Funds Transfer: Monthly payments via electronic funds transfer may be arranged through a donor’s financial institution and the UCLA Foundation.

Wire Transfer: Wire transfers are most commonly used for gifts made from outside the United States. Financial institutions provide minimal information on wire transfers, so to ensure proper disposition of the gifts, donors should alert the University that a wire transfer has been made by notifying the UCLA Ed&IS External Relations Office at (310) 206-0375.

Securities: Financial institutions provide minimal information on securities transfers, so to ensure proper disposition of the gifts, donors should alert the UCLA Ed&IS External Relations Office that a securities transfer has been made. Gifts of securities are recorded based on the mean market value of the stock, bond, or mutual fund on the date of gift, which is determined by the date the donor relinquishes control of the asset. Please contact the securities coordinator for the UCLA Foundation at (310) 794-3434 for more information and for detailed transfer instructions.
