For nearly 100 years, UCLA has been a pioneer, persevering through impossibility, turning the futile into the attainable. 

We doubt the critics, reject the status quo and see opportunity in dissatisfaction. Our campus, faculty and students are driven by optimism. It is not naive; it is essential. And it has fueled every accomplishment, allowing us to redefine what’s possible, time after time. 

This can-do perspective has brought us 14 Nobel Prizes, 14 faculty MacArthur Fellows, 118 NCAA titles and more Olympic medals than most nations. Our faculty and alumni helped create the Internet and pioneered reverse osmosis. And more than 140 companies have been created based on technology developed at UCLA.
