“Engaged in the World and Involved in the Community” celebrates the earliest history of UCLA International Studies and Ethnic Studies centers. Between 1957 and 1969, UCLA established eight research centers which served as an early example for similar centers at UCLA and at universities across the country.

The exhibit includes the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies, the Chicano Studies Research Center, the Asian American Studies Center, the American Indian Studies Center, the Center for European and Russian Studies, the James S. Coleman Center for African Studies, the Latin American Institute, and the Center for Near Eastern Studies.

The exhibit features archival material from the UCLA University Archives and selected items from other collections in UCLA Library Special Collections.
