Funded in part by a generous gift from two alumni and longtime supporters, the Meyer and Renee Luskin Conference and Guest Center will allow UCLA to compete with other universities for major academic conferences that connect faculty, researchers and students with scholars from around the world to exchange ideas and elevate debate on some of society’s greatest challenges. Centrally located near UCLA campus icons like Pauley Pavilion and Ackerman Student Union, the state-of-the-art center will include 25,000 square feet of meeting space and 250 guest rooms.
