Collective provides both academic and social support to empower transfer, re-entry, parent, and all non-traditional students to succeed in higher education.  Collective offers all students a safe and welcoming environment to further engage students in their educational pursuits. Furthermore, Collective offers a campus visits to expose disadvantaged students to possibilities and provide insight into the opportunities available through higher education.

Collective aims to recruit and retain all non-traditional students by providing services such as:

  • Transfer Outreach: Collective supports prospective transfer students through community college outreach.  A goal of transfer outreach is to interest economically and educationally disadvantaged students in continuing their post-secondary education. Resources offered are presentations, shadow days and transfer weekend at UC Davis. For more information please see handout.
  • Retention: Collective facilitates the retention of transfer, re-entry, parent, and all non-traditional UC Davis students by hosting weekly transfer hours, workshops, community mixers and other events.  At these events, students can meet new people, learn about resources on campus and increase their sense of community. Under the Aggie Transfer Mentorship Program, new transfer students are paired with second year transfer students based on their major and interests to build a sense of community and support.
  • Campus Visits: Collective offers a college-going experience around the UC Davis campus to prospective students of all educational levels (K-12 & Community College). Campus Visits is a great way that many current UC Davis students can get involved and share their unique college experiences, which will hopefully have a positive influence on visiting students and guests. If you are interested in receiving a Campus Visit Experience with the SRRC, please fill out the following application: 2017-2018 Campus Visit Request FormIf you are a current UC Davis student interested in being a volunteer with our program we would love to have you as part of our 2017-2018 Campus Visits Volunteer Cohort
