Connecting campus programs that support student success

Background image: student and instructor

The Berkeley Scholars Consortium is a network and community of campus programs that promote the academic success of UC Berkeley students.

Consortium membership includes the directors and other leadership from student-serving programs across campus. The Consortium is sponsored by Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education Oliver O’Reilly and Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Stephen C. Sutton, and is advised by a faculty advisory committee chaired by Professor tyrone hayes. The Consortium aims to:

  • Raise the visibility of Consortium member programs among students, staff, and faculty;
  • Demonstrate the effectiveness and impact of member programs, especially those programs serving students from low-income, first-generation and/or underrepresented backgrounds;
  • Effectively communicate accomplishments of member programs to potential funders and facilitate engagement between programs and funders;
  • Identify gaps and opportunities for supporting student populations underserved in the current program ecosystem;
  • Foster a professional community of practice around program design and assessment; student recruitment, advising and mentoring; data collection and analysis; fundraising and alumni relations; and other topics; and
  • Advise campus leadership and stakeholders on policies that impact member programs and their students.

Please note that while the vision and mission of the Consortium will grow to include all academic support programs, in the pilot phase attention will be restricted to STEM-focused programs.
