Chan Family

Ed and Lena Chan traveled with their daughter to visit 4 college campuses and were pleased when their daughter, Olivia, chose to attend UCR. The Chans were impressed with the university’s academic programs and the many activities and groups that promote social and professional growth among students. Ed and Lena have committed to being involved, serving as Parent Philanthropy Ambassadors with the UCR Parents Association, co-hosting a parent welcome event in their community, and traveling to campus for recruitment events and parent meetings.

Your Gift Supports

When you give to UCR you support academic excellence, research, and your student’s journey at UCR.

“As parents, we are very proud of the accomplishments of our UCR student, having graduated from this fine and wonderful research university. UCR is a place for exploration, acceptance, and guidance; this is the same passion my wife and I strive to share with our children. If this is your wish for your child, you’ve come to the right place.”
 - MICHAEL AND DEBBIE ELKINS

But the undercurrent of the music production session among members of the UCR EARS music group was something more intentional.
