To our friends, supporters, students, and alumni
For 47 years, the Student Learning Center has served as a space for academic and paraprofessional transformation. By practicing learning as a process and by insisting on community, collaboration, and innovation, we have sought to empower 170,000+ Cal undergraduates to Seek Knowledge. Locate Passion. Change the World. We invite you to hear some of their stories of transformation here.
In turn, these students have brought out the best of us, fortifying our commitment to service, strengthening our pedagogy, and enriching our core values.
We hope you will make a donation to support our work today. Your generosity is vital to our ability to continue providing high-touch, high-quality academic support to over 10,000 undergraduates on a yearly basis. Moreover, it will help ensure our mission to support educational access and equity for all Cal students.
