uberPool Ride Promo for UCLA Affiliates

There is a promotional $5.99 flat fare for all UCLA affiliates who take uberPool to and from any destination within a five mile radius from campus! The fare is valid as long as the market price of the ride is less than $15, the uber account used has a UCLA-affiliated e-mail in its profile, and the promo code (UCLAWINTER2018) is inputted properly. When it is more than that amount, the difference will be charged (e.g. a $17 ride would only cost $7.99). If it is less than $5.99, the lesser market rate will be charged. This promotion will be active 24/7 and goes live on Thursday February 1st, 2018. The purpose of the program is to give Bruins the opportunity to commute in an environmentally sustainable manner through uberPOOL, for an affordable price.

University of California Retirees Continue Public
Service Mission

A recent survey of 4,478 University of California retirees, including 600+ UCLA retirees, suggests that many retirees remain curious, vibrant and productive, with a commitment to civic engagement and public service, for many years after their retirement. The report, "UC Retirees: Advocates, Ambassadors, Assets," asked about retirees' volunteer service, professional engagement, post-retirement employment and awards/recognition. The survey's most striking findings concern the extent to which survey respondents remain committed to the University's mission of public service. A total of 2,772 (63%) respondents reported volunteering in their communities, 849 (20%) volunteered for the University, 1,154 (27%) provided professional services and 653 (15%) published written works.

For many UC retirees, retirement is not a disengagement from the university, but rather a shift in the relationship. UC retirees are reimagining and redefining their lives to make a difference, and many do so while acting as advocates, ambassadors and assets for the University of California.
