UTLA Alumni Community
The UTLA experience expands beyond one semester, as UTLA alumni play a pivotal role in the student experience as part of the alumni community. UTLA alumni are invited to Los Angeles-based student events, may provide or receive mentorship, and offer vital connectivity to internship opportunities.
Opportunities for Involvement

Host a Workplace Visit
Alumni, parents and friends play a pivotal role in enhancing the UTLA student experience. If you would like to take UTLA students on a tour of your office (size of group flexible), invite them on set, do a screening and talkback, or more, please indicate your interest on the volunteer interest form, or contact Mira Lippold-Johnson.
