UCLA Medal recipient Peter Guber with Judy Olian, dean, UCLA Anderson School of Management; Chancellor Block; Teri Schwartz, dean, UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.

He’s been the producer of movies that have earned 50 Academy Award nominations. A longtime Hollywood executive, he’s the chairman and CEO of Mandalay Entertainment. And he’s a part owner of the NBA champion Golden State Warriors and the National League champion Los Angeles Dodgers. Peter Guber has enjoyed a successful and multifaceted career, earning numerous accolades along the way.

But his life has always been about more than just achievement. For more than 40 years, Guber has taught highly popular classes at UCLA — in both the School of Theater, Film and Television, and the Anderson School of Management.

“Peter is as passionate about his teaching as he is every other aspect of his career,” Chancellor Block said before presenting Guber with the UCLA Medal.

“It’s clear that he values the opportunity to contribute and prepare the next generation for success — whether it’s in entertainment, sports or any number of other industries. His commitment is evident in the fact that, despite all he’s worked on throughout his career, Peter has never — to anyone’s knowledge — missed a year of teaching.”
