Letter from the President
After five years of being our UCLA Latino Alumni Association Scholarship Board Chair, I am enthusiastic and proud to now step forward and lead this organization alongside a talented and diverse board as President. Each board member’s unique perspectives, experiences, and love for our alma mater, drives the passion we have for ULAA and the legacy we want to leave for the future. With your support, we will use this momentum to move ULAA closer to its mission of organizing Bruins for the benefit and advancement of the UCLA alumni, students, faculty, staff and broader Latino community.
The approximately 1,200 votes that came in serve as inspiration for the work ahead of us because it truly highlights the strength and spirit of UCLA’s Latino alumni community. ULAA is looking forward to expanding its programming to better engage and support the community and to elevate our scholarship endowment from $215,000 to $1 million by our 30th Anniversary in 2019. In the coming months, we will bring more programing to you, partner with community organizations and schools to increase our community impact, and enter into our third year of our OrgullOSO Mentor Program.
On behalf of the newly elected ULAA board of directors, I am thrilled to invite you to our upcoming meet and greet where you can get to know us personally, learn more about the organization, and share your vision of ULAA with us. You are an integral part of ULAA’s growth, and I look forward to your participation as you stay engaged with us for the benefit of current and future #LatinoBruins. As a volunteer-driven organization, ULAA is dependent upon your current support, and future leadership, to keep our legacy vibrant. If you would like to get involved with one of our committees, and/or inform us about programming you would like to see, please click here for our Volunteer and Event Interest Form.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
OrgullOSO of what is to come,
