UCLA Labor Center
The UCLA Center for Labor Research and Education plays a unique role as a bridge between the university and the labor community in Southern California. This role has grown in the past few years with the dramatic changes that have overtaken the Southern California economy. As part of the university, the Labor Center serves as an important source of information and education about unions and workers to interested scholars and students. Through its extensive connections with unions and workers, the Labor Center also provides labor with important and clearly defined access to UCLA's resources and programs. The Labor Center conducts student internships with labor and community organizations; research on workplace and immigrant rights issues; and workshops and conferences on leadership development, workplace rights, and immigrant rights issues.
