The UCLA School of Nursing is a significant force in developing nurse leaders to inspire individuals across the lifespan to achieve health, wellness and quality of life. It prepares nurses and scholars to lead and transform nursing care in a rapidly changing, diverse and complex healthcare environment through academic excellence, innovative research, superior clinical practice, strong community partnerships, and global initiatives.
The UCLA Fielding School of Public Health aims to build health and equity, and to drive positive change for all people. They accomplish this mission through initiatives in three core areas: education, discovery and service. In each of these realms, they affirm their commitment to developing leaders and evidence-based solutions, and to working in partnership with communities to promote health and well-being in ways that are innovative, respectful and inclusive.
The David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA has in a little more than 60 years grown to become an internationally recognized leader in medical education, research, patient care and public service. It is a remarkable achievement for an institution that is among the youngest of the most elite medical schools in the country. Its mission is to create world leaders in health and science, discover the basis for health and cures for disease, optimize health through community partnerships and heal humankind one patient at a time.
RAND’s mission is both simple and incredibly complex: We exist to help policymakers make decisions that are based on the best available information. This may not sound much different from the goals of other policy research institutions. But the difference is in the details. At RAND, our results are fueled by the best data, the strongest methods, and the brightest minds.
RAND’s tradition of high-quality research and analysis, begun in our early years, flourished during one of the defining challenges of the United States in the 20th century: the West’s dangerous competition with the Soviet Union in a nuclear age. In a time when emotions ran high, RAND remained committed to sober, objective research and to an approach to problem-solving that is founded on rigor and stripped of speculation.
