Welcome to the
UCSB Blum Center for Global Poverty Alleviation and Sustainable Development

The UCSB Blum Center is committed to promoting interdisciplinary and socially engaged research, learning, and action to address poverty and inequality in the United States and worldwide.  Established with funding from UC Regent Richard C. Blum and the UC Office of the President, it is part of a ten-campus network across the UC system.



Do you have an opinion about an issue you care about and want to share it with others? Are you committed to a cause and want to inspire others to get involved? Have you ever thought about writing an op-ed or commentary about an issue you believe in, but weren't sure how to start? Join us for the Social Justice Writing Workshop on Thursday, April 25th at 5PM in RM 2320, Girvetz Hall.
