The coronavirus pandemic has drastically upended life in the most unforeseeable ways. At UCLA, our community is remarkably united by similar feelings of loss, confusion and concern, but also by light, hope and the perspective that the pandemic has brought to the forefront.

Many factors pose barriers between college students and their education – social life, financial status and health issues, just to name a few.
But for the 600 to 700 undocumented students at UCLA, there is another worry they must add to this list – their futures in the United States.
For students around the globe, the past month has been riddled with adjustments to online learning.
But for many UCLA students, challenges with the university’s portals – Common Collaboration and Learning Environment and MyUCLA – are nothing new.

UCLA students and faculty said at a forum Tuesday they think the next president of the University of California needs to pay attention to issues such as sustainability, inclusivity and accessibility.
