Goals of Retention at the SRRC:

We will provide student-led, holistic retention support services to historically underrepresented, low-income or educationally disadvantaged enrolled students (undergraduate & graduate).

  • SRRC will provide a supportive environment that fosters social integration through personal development, cultural awareness and leadership development.
  • SRRC will contribute to the university's health and wellness initiatives to support student well-being.
  • SRRC will use a scaffolding pedagogy to culturally empower and progressively move students toward degree completion.
  • SRRC will promote holistic learning to engage students in the praxis of critical consciousness.
  • SRRC will value the advancement of graduate education.

Through a holistic framework the SRRC strives to improve the retention and graduation rates of UC Davis students from underrepresented, low-income or educationally disadvantaged communities.
