Welcome UCLA Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Graduating Class of 2021!

Congratulations on your graduation from UCLA! We are very proud of your accomplishments. We commend you for persevering during this difficult and unprecedented time, in which you had to face many unforeseen challenges.

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we cannot celebrate your commencement together in person. You have worked really hard and deserve all the credit and recognition. In light of this, we wanted to make this milestone achievement in your life as special as possible so we created this page for you! Please feel free to explore this page and find messages from the Chair of EEB, Student Speaker and Faculty members, as well as a Virtual Yearbook with slides of our graduating seniors. You can also find your name listed below and a live forum, in which your family and friends can post congratulatory messages for you!

Once again, we offer our congratulations and best wishes as you embark on this next step in your journey. GO BRUINS!

Don’t forget to make your make your graduation festive with the #UCLA2021 Commencement Celebration Kit.

The EEB Commencement Virtual Yearbook will go live on this website Friday, June 11, 2021 at 1 P.M. (PST).

Faculty Messages

message from Dr. Paul Barber

message from Dr. Peggy Fong

message from Dr. Ren Larison

message from Dr. Tom Smith

message from Dr. Alison Lipman & Dr. Leryn Gorlitsky

With extended sabbatical leaves, pandemic lab class cancellations, and remote instruction/contact, I have had little classroom contact with members of the class of 2021.  For the second year in a row, we will miss the celebration of an actual commencement ceremony.  Nevertheless, I still feel a great deal of satisfaction in seeing this particular class complete their studies and earn their degrees.  Last year, the class of 2020 graduated to an uncertain future but this year things are looking up.  The class of 2021 will be known for their resilience, their hard work in spite of adverse conditions, and being the builders of what will become the New Normal.  I congratulate you on your accomplishment and wish you a bright future.

Don Buth
