Outreach & Retention

The Outreach and Retention Program at Berkeley City College (BCC) serves as a liaison to the local community, and is responsible for coordinating the college’s outreach and recruitment activities at local area schools. The Outreach and Retention Program collaborates with departments, Learning Communities, ambassadors, and other district organizations to provide in-reach retention activities.

Our outreach goals are to inform high school students, teachers, counselors, parents, and the public about educational opportunities at Berkeley City College, foster positive relationships with educational partners from K-12 school districts, adult education schools, and facilitate the transition of students from area schools to BCC through pre-admission support services.  Our In-reach efforts focus on engaging students in a variety of opportunities and activities to expand their knowledge of what BCC has to offer.
