The mission of the Student Promoted Access Center for Education and Service (SPACES) is to act as an empowering dynamic on campus where UCSD students collaborate to achieve greater educational equity. This encompasses equal access to higher education, undergraduate retention and graduation, and matriculation to graduate and professional schools.
SPACES values the power of student initiated action and organizing by providing an environment for student growth and development and thus is a foundation to create leadership and unity through community engagement.
SPACES shall serve as the center for student-initiated access and retention projects at the university. Student-Initiated Access Programs and Services (SIAPS) shall exist as the “access” component to SPACES. The Academic Success Program (ASP) shall exist as the “retention” component to SPACES.
