Giving to the UCLA Division of Humanities provides critical support for all our Departments and Centers.

In an effort to recognize and thank the many generous donors whose visionary and strategic investment in the Humanities at UCLA has directly contributed to our rank as one of the leading programs in the world, we offer membership in our Dean’s Circle giving society. Through the Dean’s Circle, each member is provided with:

  • Invitations to Division-wide events throughout the year
  • Invitations to Humanities Dean’s Circle receptions
  • Recognition on Humanities website and special event programming
  • Special access to the Dean and faculty of the Humanities

We are humbled by the continued success of our faculty and our students, and we are truly thankful to our alumni and friends who play an important role in enabling the Humanities to thrive both on and off campus.

To learn more about the Dean’s Circle, including how to become a member, please contact Jenelle Bossett at (310) 206-5379.
