Bruinlink | February 2015
Dear Parents & Families,
The Office of Parent and Family Programs is the hub for parents and families to find resources and engage with UCLA for almost a decade. This office has now found a permanent home with Alumni Affairs. As the Associate Vice Chancellor of Alumni Affairs, it is my pleasure to welcome families of UCLA undergraduates to the James West Alumni Center. Parents and families are now part of a larger community; which will provide even more opportunities to interact with the Bruin family. Nothing will change about the wonderful service you receive from the Parent and Family Programs staff, but there will be increased support to enhance the already existing program. I encourage you to be on the lookout for alumni events and volunteer opportunities for parents and families on campus and in your local area. This is an exciting time in history of the Office of Parent and Family Programs and we are happy that you are on the journey with us for many years to come.
Julie Sina, Ph.D.
Associate Vice Chancellor, Alumni Affairs
