Campaign Anderson’s Commitment to Faculty

School seeks to sustain excellence in teaching and research

Los Angeles — UCLA Anderson’s faculty is consistently ranked among the finest in the world. The research conducted and published by UCLA Anderson faculty is among the most often cited in the works of researchers at other institutions. UCLA Anderson students and alumni benefit directly from this work, as the latest innovations and knowledge are passed on from teacher to students who implement these lessons in practical business settings.

In order to maintain and grow this outstanding faculty, a key component of Campaign Anderson is increasing faculty support and endowments.

Eric Juline’s favorite professor while in business school taught him more than just the fundamentals of management, he taught him life lessons. In fact, he learned that theory not only reaches beyond the classroom but it enriches business community and allows practitioners to gain a better grasp of their fluctuating world. Having learned such a valuable lesson, Juline was determined to give back to those who trained him to be the business leader he is today — creating the Eric G. Juline Fund — a fund dedicated to providing faculty awards on an annual basis. "I believe in our faculty and the valuable research they provide. That’s why I felt it was important to demonstrate in a meaningful way, how their studies still impact my day to day activities."

Juline understands that the foundation and drawing power of any great institution of higher learning is its faculty.

And now we turn to you. To remain competitive, UCLA Anderson must provide funding for the thinkers, innovators, and teachers who define the quality of our academic programs and student body. This, in turn, influences UCLA Anderson’s ability to attract top corporate recruiters and other influential members of the business community.

That is why UCLA Anderson is racing to raise the financial resources necessary to provide faculty with highly competitive compensation packages and professional development incentives before the close of our campaign. The fact is that we now lag behind our peers in this area. As a consequence, we risk losing faculty to schools that offer superior salaries and compensation.

Join us in cementing a standard of excellence at UCLA Anderson. Your gift to Campaign Anderson will grow the next generation of business leaders. Remember, every gift counts.
