The Skoll Center for Social Impact Entertainment at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television (Skoll Center for SIE) is the first of its kind dedicated solely to advancing the power of entertainment and performing arts to inspire social change.

The Skoll Center for SIE at UCLA TFT serves to advance the role of entertainment and performing arts to inspire and drive social change. Its mission is to establish, define and foster the new field of social impact entertainment, and serve as a resource for students, practitioners, and organizations in this emerging ecosystem.

“A key goal of the center is to bring together groups that don’t often connect around the topic of storytelling, serving as a hub for foundations, social entrepreneurs, non-profits, philanthropists, corporations, and the creative community, who need a resource to create new ways to connect and tell stories.” – Jeff Skoll
