Boelter Society

Dean Llewellyn M. K. Boelter The Boelter Society, named for the first dean of the school, is the leadership giving society of UCLA Engineering. Its members, who give $1,000 or more annually, or $100,000 or more over the course of their lifetimes, show incredible leadership and vision by generously supporting the school.


Through the generosity of Boelter Society members, the school is able to provide student aid, improve classrooms and labs, and attract top students and faculty.

Young Professional Boelter Society

The Young Professional Boelter Society was established to provide UCLA Engineering graduates of the last decade the opportunity to connect and network with other UCLA Engineering alumni while making a significant impact on the School and playing a vital role in its future.  Members of the Young Professional Boelter Society enjoy the same benefits as all other members.
