The UCLA/Getty Program in the Conservation of Cultural Heritage is one of a kind, recognized nationally and across the globe as a leading education and research program with a unique specialization. The UCLA/Getty Conservation Program is the only graduate-level academic conservation program on the West Coast of the United States, and the only national program with a sole focus on archaeological and ethnographic materials, boasting an impressive record of attracting exceptional students. With cuts to state funding continuing to impact the university and the UCLA/Getty Program on the Conservation of Archaeological and Ethnographic Materials, scholarship, access and excellence will depend more than ever on the generous support our friends and alumni.

Students who complete our program are educated not only in the principles, science and practice of conservation ensuring the preservation of the world’s cultural heritage but also in how to become leaders, problem solvers and better citizens that will serve and inspire the community.

Giving to the UCLA/Getty Conservation Program will ensure quality research and education that has been its hallmark and will guarantee the continuation of a world-class public collegiate education in a competitive academic environment. Contributing to the UCLA/Getty Program can make all the difference in our ability to attract and retain top faculty and to educate the best graduate students.

Gifts to the UCLA/Getty Conservation Program Fund will provide vital support towards research, fellowships, and academic programming, serving as a foundation for our graduate students to achieve their goals.
