Mission & Pillars

Our Mission

The mission of the Calvin E. Bright Success Center is to provide learning support, transition programs, and individualized interventions which empower UC Merced students to be successful in their academic and personal development. We provide opportunities and co-curricular experiences that aid students in enhancing their knowledge of university resources, academic and personal growth/ development, advocacy, and access. Through intentional collaborations and program delivery, we focus on overcoming barriers and celebrating academic milestones.

Our Vision

Services for Undocumented Students will promote the advancement of undocumented students in higher education.
