The Economic Crisis Response Team (ECR TEAM) provides support and guidance to students who have self-identified, or are identified by UCLA faculty or staff, as experiencing a financial crisis that impacts their academic success at UCLA. We aim to efficiently, compassionately and discreetly:
1) Provide a seamless and individualized response to UCLA students in extraordinary financial crisis.
2) Develop proposals for actions to examine (and revise, when appropriate) university policies and office protocols in order to improve students' ability to manage their financial situations and avoid economic crisis.
Due to the Covid-19 "Stay at Home" order, our team is currently operating remotely. We can still be reached via our self-assessment form, email or phone. Please leave us a message and we will get back to you. Please note our response will be delayed during this time. One of our team members will respond to your request as soon as possible. To expedite our response and assessment of your needs, please fill out the Self-Assessment Form below.
