The Bruin Guardian Scholars Program is dedicated to providing current and former foster youth with resources to help support students throughout their academic endeavors. BGS has many partners and liaisons to help make your time at UCLA as stress-free as possible. We offer resources that span from campus resources, where we can get you in contact with liaisons that can help you with academic, financial, or even mental wellness; to community resources, where we get you in contact with individuals who can help you with transitional housing, and other basic needs. We also try to connect our BGS members with employment and scholarship opportunities.

UCLA’s Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) was formed in 2016 to provide support to UCLA students who are in recovery from substance use or other addictive behaviors. We are dedicated to providing academic, wellness, and emotional support to students who are in recovery or who are considering recovery. Through individual support, education, and campus advocacy, we aim to create an inclusive environment and supportive community to help students thrive at UCLA and beyond.

The Intergroup Dialogue (IGD) Program, within the Bruin Resource Center (BRC), aims to cultivate a campus environment that is inclusive and promotes a sense of belonging for the students, staff, and faculty of UCLA. 

IGD embodies this vision through its mission to engage, support, and educate the UCLA community on issues of social identity, interpersonal and intergroup relations/conflicts, prejudice reduction, social justice, and to impart valuable multicultural skills necessary for active participation at UCLA and in an increasingly diverse and global society.
