Our culture of openness, freedom and belonging make it a special place for students, faculty and staff.
The University of California, Berkeley, is one of the world's leading institutions of higher education, distinguished by its combination of internationally recognized academic and research excellence; the transformative opportunity it provides to a large and diverse student body; its public mission and commitment to equity and social justice; and its roots in the California experience, animated by such values as innovation, questioning the status quo, and respect for the environment and nature. Since its founding in 1868, Berkeley has fueled a perpetual renaissance, generating unparalleled intellectual, economic and social value in California, the United States and the world.
We are looking for equity-minded applicants who represent the full diversity of California and who demonstrate a sensitivity to and understanding of the diverse academic, socioeconomic, cultural, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, and ethnic backgrounds present in our community. When you join the team at Berkeley, you can expect to be part of an inclusive, innovative and equity-focused community that approaches higher education as a matter of social justice that requires broad collaboration among faculty, staff, students and community partners. In deciding whether to apply for a position at Berkeley, you are strongly encouraged to consider whether your values align with our Guiding Values and Principles, our Principles of Community, and our Strategic Plan.
Housed within the Division of Student Affairs, the Center for Educational Partnerships (CEP) is the primary unit on campus charged with developing and implementing programs and strategies to improve academic preparation, expand educational opportunities, and ensure access to higher education and to the University of California for low-income and educationally disadvantaged students.
Working in partnership with over 125 schools and 68 California community colleges each year, CEP improves academic achievement and expands post-secondary educational opportunities for students who face significant barriers to college. CEP's programs help young people overcome educational and financial barriers to prepare for and be accepted at two- or four-year colleges. Twelve programs provide services free-of-charge to well over 75,000 students annually including summer programs that give hundreds of students academic enrichment while some actually experience student life at the campus of the University of California in Berkeley. CEP's school-wide/systemic change programs help build college-going cultures in schools and districts by serving teachers, counselors, administrators, and families.
The Early Academic Outreach Program (EAOP), one of twelve programs in the Center for Educational Partnerships, is a University of California-sponsored program that prepares students from under-resourced communities for admission to the University of California and other colleges and universities. This mission is accomplished by offering academic enrichment opportunities, providing timely college preparation information, and advising and supporting our students, families, schools, and communities. Services offered include academic enrichment summer academies, academic advising, and information dissemination to students, schools, and families on the educational and social benefits of post-secondary education.
