Recruitment & Retention Organizing Committee

Mission Statement

Guided by the principles of holistic learning, RROC will strive to create an atmosphere conducive for educational achievement encourage the development of critical consciousness at the primary, secondary, and university levels; and serve as a vehicle to empower all people.


The RROC is the governing board of the Student Recruitment and Retention Center and exists to ensure that the following goals of the SRRC are satisfied.

  • We will promote and support academic preparation, leadership development and cultural enrichment activities for non-college tracked youth and community college students (k-12 & community college).
  • We will provide student-led, holistic retention support services to historically underrepresented, low-income or educationally disadvantaged enrolled students (undergraduate & graduate).
