Student Outreach and Retention Center

Affiliates logo #3

Our Vision

The "SOARing for Education" Affiliation program is designed to promote community building amongst different campus registered student organizations and the SOAR Center to work together and uplift the mission and vision of the center. SOARing for Education will develop authentic student leaders that will be equipped with the tools, skills, and knowledge to execute innovative, student-initiated outreach and retention programs through mentorship and student-led training.

The outreach and retention programs will foster critical dialogue, mentorship, and reimagine the educational system to improve college access, retention, and graduation rates for historically underrepresented and under-resourced communities in higher education.
