The goal of ASUCR Outreach is to build more peer to peer interaction through innovative programming  Moreover, influencing and motivating students 7-12th grade to become more passionate about higher education.

We plan to do so by:

  • Holding more frequent programs
  • Innovation
  • Transparency to High School students

Spring Quarter ASUCR Outreach:

  • ¬†We will be¬†focusing on creating a system that maximizes opportunity for Outreach events/programs here at UCR.
  • We¬†plan on enforcing this goal by not only finding more ways clubs can access funding for outreach events. But also publicizing these events so that more students can be aware of volunteer opportunities.

Are you interested in volunteering for Outreach events put on by your fellow peers? Then check out this web of Outreach, which is a list of the upcoming Outreach events for the Quarter that have been funded by the SIAP grant and their lead contact so that you can become involved!
