I may be mentioning #gradschool a lot because it's finals week and it's top of mind, but it really has been the #biggestchange for my family in #2017. First, it required a >300-mile relocation and giving up the home we'd lived in for 6 years, my husband had to change offices and teams at his company, and now after almost 20 years out of school, I find myself trying to remember how to write papers and study for exams. It's been interesting and I look forward to seeing what comes next. #decemberreflections2017#uclaluskin
The official launch of the #UCLAlatino Policy & Politics Initiative (LPPI) was an evening full of inspiration! On behalf of #LPPI, thank you to those who attended in support of #California’s first major multi-issue policy initiative and *special* thanks to our invited speakers: CA Senate President pro Tempore @kdeleon,@uclalawschool Professor Laura E. Gómez, @wearemitu Senior Political Strategist @lucyfloresnv, #UCLA Executive Vice Chancellor & Provost Scott Waugh, and #UCLA Dean of Social Sciences @darnell_hunt.

Spotted: Our very own Pui-Yee at @thelakitchen for part of the @uclaluskin lecture series. The "What's On The Plate? Sustainability of Social Enterprises" lecture took place last Thursday, November 30th and featured panelists who strive to improve our community through for-profit businesses. Attendees learned about food cost and distribution through an interactive cooking class. #lakitchen#uclaluskin#offthetable#sustainability#foodmovement#socialenterprise#lincolnheights
