The Student Recruitment and Retention Center (SRRC) is recruiting for student leaders for the 2019-2020 academic year. We are seeking self-motivated, accountable, professional leaders!
Thank you for your interest in being part of the SRRC. Working at a student-initiated, student-led center is a rare and unique opportunity only available at few universities nationwide.
The SRRC's vision is to attain educational equity by empowering historically underrepresented, low-income, or educationally disadvantaged communities that have been affected by the passing of Prop 209 in California. Through a holistic support model, we offer services that empower students to act as dynamic leaders for their communities.
Working for the SRRC is both amazing and empowering, allowing you to:
Give back to underrepresented student community on the UC Davis campus and regionally.
Gain awareness of socio-political, cultural and social justice concerns affecting underrepresented communities.
Gain valuable leadership and organizational skills through the development of self-initiated projects, proposals, and budgets.
Coordinate programming that effectively recruits and/or retains underrepresented students.
Work individually with students to holistically address their needs.
Gain a better understanding of educational equity through the SRRC’s holistic support model to recruiting and retaining students.
