As a member of the California Postsecondary Education Commission, Welinsky views with alarm the annual salary studies he reads that show the University of California lagging behind other schools with which it competes. “I look at how UC compares with the higher-end privates, and I get very, very worried,” he says.

Welinsky didn’t undertake his role as a volunteer advocate until 15 years after he graduated, when he spent a day in Sacramento with university volunteers visiting legislators. Then he came to fully understand how important UCLA was to so many people.

Today, he takes great pride in seeing front-page headlines that tout UCLA’s latest research breakthroughs, knowing he played a role as a volunteer. “To sell UCLA,” he says, “is to sell the future.”
