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.
