2016 College Access and Preparation (CAP) Forum - June 16th - 17th, 2016

CAP Forum 2016

About the CAP Forum

Each year, the University of California Office of Diversity and Engagement sponsors the College Access and Preparation (CAP) Forum, a gathering of UC professionals working to advance higher education for all students, in particular first generation, low income and underserved students who need support to become college-ready. The program spans two days and includes sessions designed to inform and engage UC staff serving in outreach, student academic preparation and educational partnership programs. 

Diverse Strengths, Shared Vision: Drawing on our collective knowledge to help students succeed. The idea behind the theme of the 2016 CAP Forum was to leverage and share the formidable expertise of our own campuses in the service of advancing educational opportunities for students from underrepresented backgrounds and underserved schools.

The June 2016 forum featured sessions that addressed critical issues in educational equity, and increasing diversity in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. Follow the links below for specific presentations.
