By serving as a first point of contact the Outreach Department aims to provide resources and services that the college offers to current and prospective students. Our goal is to inform the community about their educational options regardless of their circumstances and/or background and to support in ensuring a smooth transition and enrollment process.

Our Outreach & Retention Staff Members welcome new and potential students to campus, provide printed information, enrollment support, and can often be found on-site at local high schools and community-based organizations throughout Oakland and Alameda.

Meet our team of Peer Outreach Advisers! We are students from diverse backgrounds who use our experience to help you apply, enroll, and persist.
