We would like to cordially invite you to participate in Transfer Empowerment Day, a one-day conference focused on demystifying and empowering California community college students to pursue higher education.
We, bridges, a Multicultural Resource Center, work to recruit & retain students of color into and currently at the University of California, Berkeley. We are one collective coalition made up of 7 Recruitment & Retention Centers (RRCs); Black Recruitment & Retention Center [BBRC], Alaskan/ Native Hawaiian/ Pacific Islander Coalition [INC], Middle Eastern & North African Recruitment & Retention Center [MENA], Mixed Student Union [MRRC], Pilipinx Academic Student Services [PASS], Latinx Recruitment & Retention Center [Raíces], and Asian/Pacific Islander Recruitment & Retention Center [REACH!]. Our work is centralized in providing education, resources, and support to various marginalized communities.
Transfer Empowerment Day will be held April 9th from 9 am – 2 pm via Zoom. TED will consist of presentations, workshops, panels, and performances meant to motivate underrepresented students of color to pursue opportunities for post-secondary education, increase in cross-cultural dialogue and solidarity, cultural awareness, and political mobilization. The event attempts to provide various avenues of understanding higher education through the lens of current students and staff, who share their experiences and stories.
