A Celebration of Leadership and Legacy

Two titans of UCLA Anderson are set to retire on June 30, 2022:  Senior Associate Dean Alfred E. Osborne, Jr. and Adjunct Professor Bill Cockrum.

Osborne, Jr. Fellowship Fund; Professor William M. Cockrum Fellowship Fund; and/or the UCLA Anderson Venture Fellows Program!
