On March 13th, UCLA’s administration, campus leaders and public health officials made the difficult choice to extend the initial transition to remote learning to limit the spread of COVID-19 through the end of spring quarter 2020. This decision was made in order to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff, while maintaining UCLA’s exemplary educational standards.
Students who are able have been asked to return home to learn remotely. Students who must stay at UCLA will be cared for, protected and sheltered. Faculty and staff are rising to the occasion, learning new ways in which to serve and keep the UCLA enterprise running while protecting themselves, their families and the community. Bruins near and far are being asked to work and play differently, while still maintaining the bonds of our UCLA family.
As in any time of crisis, the UCLA community responds with optimism and generosity - asking what they can do to help. Here’s how:
The Dashew Center
Due to the California Stay at Home Order effective March 20th, 2020, the Dashew Center is has transitioned its operations to remote work setting. However, the Dashew Center is still operational and is committed to our community of over 12,000 international students and scholars. Staff are working diligently to ensure that all of our students, especially those far away from home, are cared for as part of our Bruin family.
The Dashew Center is ready to assist all international members of the UCLA community and provides:
- Advising on immigration and visa services for UCLA students, scholars, staff and faculty.
- A supportive community for affected members of our Bruin family to deal with stress and anxiety.
