Our Mission

The mission of the SOAR Center is to provide support and enrichment opportunities for students at the University of California, Irvine (UCI). We are committed to help students survive and thrive by increasing their engagement on and off campus, fostering their academic success, and creating a supportive social environment. We promote student leadership development through student initiated outreach and retention projects, and serve as a bridge between the information, resources, and services that contribute to their success.

Our Goals

  • Promote and support to student initiated outreach and retention projects
  • Foster student leadership development and empowerment
  • Increase student engagement on and off campus
  • Address the educational access and retention needs of underrepresented and underserved students



We provide consultations for students who are facing academic challenges, need guidance, or want to explore post-graduation pathways.


The multipurpose room is available for student outreach organizations to reserve Monday-Thursday from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.
