UCLA: Our Stories, Our Impact is a multimedia traveling exhibit that illuminates the role of UCLA and its alumni in advancing equity and equality in America. The exhibit is anchored by the stories of present and former Bruins who have advanced and shaped social justice movements.

As we count 100 years of achievement as a public institution, we celebrate our shared commitment to the public good. Through these narratives, we hope to shed light on the less known and less-recognized leaders whose paths were not easy and who come from communities and neighborhoods where access to higher education was not a given. While others saw disadvantages, these Bruins saw opportunities to make positive change.

These stories inspire us to continue lighting the way for our community and beyond, in the spirit of UCLA. What impact will you make? Share a story using #UCLAOurStories.
