Organized by the Alumni Scholars Club, the My Last Lecture Award is the only faculty award at UCLA selected entirely by the student body. It began fifty years ago when notable UCLA professors put all of their life lessons and advice for students into one "last lecture."
Nominate a professor that inspires you by March 17.
The professor with the most votes will be awarded the My Last Lecture Award and invited to give a lecture on life lessons this May. He or she will answer the question posed to the original lecturers 50 years ago: What would you tell your audience if you had but one lecture to give - your last lecture on this earth?
Only one nomination per student.
"My Last Lecture did more than just allow me to learn concrete facts from a professor’s area of expertise; it also gave me a window into the often unexposed side of academia – the humanity of being an intellectual."
