Create Your Own Bruin Experience

Parents’ Council members are an essential part of the university community. From serving coffee at the quarterly Dashew Center World Cafes to welcoming thousands of new students and families at Bruin Day, members serve as ambassadors and champions of the institution through a variety of volunteer opportunities on and off campus.

Make a lasting impact on and off the UCLA campus by supporting students, families, and campus initiatives while enjoying opportunities to connect with students, campus administration, and fellow Bruin families. Applications close July 22 so don’t delay, apply today.
