Whether the challenge is grand and has global implications, like writing the plan for the world’s first sustainable megacity, or targeted to the local community, like developing a grading system for restaurants, UCLA is good to go. Whether the university’s contribution takes the shape of mobile health clinics that serve the most helpless among us, or is embodied in civic leaders with UCLA degrees who imagined a great global city and then brought it to life, UCLA makes the world a better place in countless ways, large and small.
