Professional Training and Development
At UCLA, we don’t just hire the best. We provide training so you can be the best. From the day you begin work as a member of the development team, you’ll find that opportunities abound – not only for becoming more effective at your job, but also for making your career go where you want it to.

Among the training opportunities we have provided recently:

Major gift training facilitated by Advancement Resources, a leading provider of research-based training workshops for development professionals.

External Affairs panel discussions on targeted development topics from gift solicitation, acceptance and reporting to building effective relations with academic leadership.

Year-long campus human resources leadership training programs for professionals at all career levels.

Brown Bag Lunches, an interactive series that provides a comfortable forum for development officers to learn about topics such as donor recognition and gift fund management.

In-Service meetings, focusing on development fundamentals and current issues affecting UCLA.
