Institute for the Study of Los Angeles

The Institute for the Study of Los Angeles (ISLA) supports three categories of programs: student research and community interaction; faculty research and course development; and alumni, public and community partner collaboration.

All three spheres of activity overlap and connect the Oxy community to our larger LA community in order to discover, preserve, analyze, and share the culture and history of this region. Learn more about what the Institute can offer Occidental Students and Community Partners.
