Collective: Transfer and Non-Traditional Student Empowerment


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. 
  • 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.
