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.

Housed within the Division of Student Affairs, the Center for Educational Partnerships (CEP) is the primary department on the UC Berkeley campus charged with developing and implementing programs and strategies to improve academic preparation, expand educational opportunities, and ensure access to higher education for California's low-income, first generation, and underrepresented students. Working in partnership with local schools and communities, CEP improves academic achievement and expands post-secondary educational opportunities for students who face significant barriers to college.
The Community College Transfer Services (CCTS) provides leadership and resources to California community colleges, students, staff, and communities to increase the academic preparation and opportunity for first-generation, low-income, students of color and/or traditionally marginalized students who aspire to transfer to four-year colleges, including UC Berkeley. The services provided by CCTS continue the educational pipeline from high school through California community colleges to four-year institutions. CCTS's work promotes the belief that 'transfer' is critical to providing access to higher education and to California's commitment to educational equity.
In an effort to increase the transfer rate and the diversity of California community college students enrolling at UC, CEP established the Transfer Alliance Project (TAP). TAP provides intensive student academic development and enrichment services for underserved students at selected CA community colleges. TAP promotes strong partnerships between high school outreach programs, community colleges, and four-year institutions by working with graduates from CEP's high school programs and participants in community college learning communities. TAP works closely with community college faculty and support programs to develop strong networks and access to resources for students.
