UCLA’s Linguistics Department is consistently ranked among the top departments in the nation. Our distinguished faculty, who are engaged in pioneering research at the forefront of linguistic theory, are also dedicated teachers committed to both undergraduate and graduate education. Their presence, in turn, attracts outstanding students, who contribute significantly to research and teaching in the department.

To maintain and enhance the quality of our facilities and programs over the coming years, the Linguistics Department depends on substantial support beyond what the state of California can provide. Private contributions play a key role in enabling us to attract and support top students, improve undergraduate and graduate programs, and maintain state-of-the art facilities and resources for research and teaching. Your tax-deductible donation will have an immediate impact.

In recognition of the importance of annual gifts to the Department, you will be part of the UCLA leadership giving program, the Chancellor’s Society. As a leadership donor at UCLA, you will receive special courtesies based on your leadership level gift.
