Mentors, role models and policy experts provide an incomparable learning experience for students to burnish their leadership skills.
A Social Welfare student attends an international conference in Washington, D.C. Her State Department mentor adds depth to the experience and introduces her to a career opportunity network. A Public Policy student hears an array of experts discuss insuring the uninsured, with commentary from a knowledgeable vice president from Blue Shield of California. An Urban Planning student is paired with a Los Angeles city planner and ends up working in his office as an intern. The academic fields and interests differ, but all three students and their mentors are part of the same program: the Senior Fellows Program at the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs.
This premier leadership training program engages prominent community leaders, business professionals and policy makers as mentors, role models and policy experts who brief students in their fields of expertise. The hallmark of the UCLA Luskin School is theory interwoven with practice, and the Senior Fellows Program is one of the most effective ways students learn experientially as they develop their leadership skills and deepen their commitment to enhancing human well-being and promoting social and economic justice. Since 1997, Senior Fellows have contributed their time and expertise in fields including health, philanthropy, business, security, education, transportation and poverty.
In order to provide the most in-depth and challenging experience for the outstanding students selected for this program, the UCLA Luskin School has set a campaign goal of $100,000 in support of programming and operating expenses. All contributions are welcome, but support from current and former mentors and mentees would be particularly meaningful to the School and our students. Make a contribution and register a vote of confidence in the students who are training to become tomorrow’s leaders and public servants.
