Social and Civic Responsibility

At the UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television, social and civic responsibility is part of our DNA. As one of the world’s great universities, it is our honor to help students use their talents to serve the greater good — to enlighten, engage, and inspire change for a better world — which is one of the reasons we offer projects, programs, and relationships that connect students to the city of Los Angeles, the county, and the world.
