Friends of the Cotsen Institute

Private philanthropy plays a vital role in fueling investigation and enabling tomorrow's achievements. The Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at UCLA is home to both the Interdepartmental Archaeology Program and the UCLA/Getty Interdepartmental Program in the Conservation of Cultural Heritage. The Cotsen Institute fosters a collaborative environment among archaeologists from nine different academic departments who have common interests, with diverse skills and expertise. Faculty and students are engaged in pioneering research that can shed light on our society today.

With your support, the Cotsen Institute will remain at the forefront of discovery, research, education, conservation and publication.
