Winter Quarter Begins


“If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?” – Percy Bysshe Shelley

As the temperature begins to drop and the new year quickly approaches we begin to reflect on the months past and we begin to look ahead. We begin to envision a future more in line with our truest aspirations, with a new determination and willingness to believe and work towards a higher good.

This upcoming year will be filled with all kinds of new excitement at UPR. We will be kicking off our Second Saturday Speaker’s Platform on January 14th with “Mentoring the Inner Journey,” a lecture and discussion with Dr. Jonathan Young in our auditorium. In conjunction with this series, our library and bookstore will be open to the public each second Saturday of the month. We welcome everyone to come visit and join our Los Angeles and global, online community. We hope to see you soon.

UPR’s Winter Enrollment Deadline is Monday, January 9th, two weeks before the quarter is scheduled to begin on the 23rd. If you have been thinking of enrolling into any of our programs or taking single courses, now is the time to contact us for more information and to begin your application process. Our offices are open M-F 10am-4pm Pacific time. Give us a call during these hours at 323.663.2167 or email us at and a university representative will be happy to assist you.
