UCLA Luskin Center for Innovation
The mission of the Luskin Center is to unite the intellectual capital of UCLA with forward-looking civic leaders to address the most pressing issues confronting our community, nation, and world. To achieve this mission, the Luskin Center is organized around initiatives that seek to translate world-class research and expertise into real-world policy solutions. See the side bars for links to our various initiative pages. Cross-cutting themes across many of our initiative areas include sustainability, technology, and environmental justice.
Sustainability at UCLA is broad and encompasses every aspect of the university, from training the leaders of tomorrow to have the skills to face complex global sustainability issues, to how we operate the university throughout housing, medical centers, classrooms and all of our facilities. UCLA, along with the UC System is working towards a number of significant sustainability goals, set forth in the UC Policy on Sustainable Practices.
