UCLA retirees lead active lives, and that includes service to the community and to the university.
In October 2020, 981 UCLA retirees responded to a system-wide survey. The survey respondents reported that 65% of them (643) volunteered in the community, and 25% (249) volunteered for the University of California.
Service to the community fell into multiple categories:
| Percentage|| Number|| Category|
Additional responses: Other (144), mentoring/tutoring (77), medical (63), library/literacy (50), governmental (27). Multiple responses were allowed, so percentages may total more than 100%.
There were two questions in the survey about service to the University of California. The first question was about mentoring, advising or teaching.There were 168 positive responses to this question. Fifty-five reported volunteering with undergraduates, 63 with graduate students, and 105 with staff, faculty or administration. Again, multiple responses were allowed.
The second question was about participating in university committees, research, event/program support, or health care provision. There were 196 positive responses to this question. Multiple responses included 39 reporting health care activities, 44 event/program support, 62 research, and 94 committees, fundraising or promotions.
