An Inclusive Culture

Not Only do you belong here, you ECHO


At UCLA Anderson, inclusion is not just a value, it is a practice. In a community of people with diverse backgrounds, identities and points of view, we champion one another’s growth and success by being engaged, courageous, humble and open (ECHO).

You are eager to be at your best. UCLA Anderson supports you.

We are engaged with one another, even when we do not agree.

We are courageous in learning about views that sit outside of our comfort zones.

We are humble in acknowledging the vast complexity of our diverse identities.

We are open in expressing our authentic selves to one another.
