Sharing a meal is a lovely way to mark a special occasion, and we hope you’re nourished by the banquet you now hold in your hands.

Our centerpiece feature is all about food — explorations of the innovative, interdisciplinary ways our faculty and students are using this lens to tackle some of society’s most complex issues. Other features include a spotlight on long-view projects expected to bear fruit in the coming decades and a piece on creative combinations of majors and minors devised by students (and professors) to round out their undergraduate education. We have filled these pages with some of the many extraordinary stories and voices that help make the UCLA College a world leader in every way.

Please join us, too, in a grateful toast to David Schaberg, senior dean of the College and dean of humanities, who concludes his distinguished leadership term this October. He has long been — and will continue to be — an exemplary champion of the UCLA College and its mission.

We hope you enjoy this issue and that it inspires you to connect further with the College and all the incredible work we’re cooking up. Bon appétit!
