SIPHR Mission

 

Mission

Student-Initiated Programs for Holistic Retention (SIPHR) is a student-initiated and student-run service that functions to increase the retention rates of University of California, San Diego undergraduates. SIPHR will be proactive at preventing academic probation, disqualification, and drop-out within underserved and underresourced communities including students from low income, first generation, nontraditional, undocumented, disabled communities of color.

Learning Outcomes

  • Bridge educational disparities and challenges by providing programming and resources that promote the academic success of students from underresourced and underserved backgrounds.
  • Enrich underresourced and underrepresented students’ sense of belonging and undergraduate experiences by building emotionally supportive relationships between undergraduates, staff, faculty, and alumni. 
  • Connect underresourced students to culturally effective resources and programs that support their academic, personal, and professional growth. 
  • Strengthen preparedness for graduating students in constructing their post-graduation objectives and developing their career pathways. 

Through this, SIPHR will address educational inequity within the university system by providing academic assistance, facilitating student enrichment, and countering financial and food insecurity. SIPHR is committed to serving and fostering a sense of belonging to historically underrepresented and marginalized student populations.
