The Early Academic outreach program was established in 1976 by the University of California to increase the number of students who have the opportunity to achieve a postsecondary education. Through a series of educational partnerships between school districts, school sites, and community organizations, EAOP designs, develops, and implements academic enrichment strategies to increase the college going rates of the schools it serves.
UC Berkeley Latinx/Xicanx* students established the RAZA Recruitment and Retention Center to increase the number of Latinx/Xicanx students in institutions of higher education and provide academic and social support networks in order to encourage academic achievement among students. Since its establishment in 1976, in conjunction with the efforts and dedication of student volunteers and interns, the RAZA Recruitment and Retention Center continues its mission of proactively increasing the status of the Raza community professionally, socially and politically, both on and off campus. *Latinx/Xicanx is used to be more inclusive of the different gender identities. --- If you'd like to donate to the Raza Recruitment and Retention Center, please click on the link below. http://tinyurl.com/Donate...
