University of California, Santa Barbara

In 2019, a partnership was developed between the College Advising Corps and the University of California, Santa Barbara’s (UCSB’s) Office of Education Partnerships. This partnership was fostered by the UC Office of the President and UC Berkeley’s Destination College Advising Corps (DCAC) program.

The UCSB College Advising Corps has adopted the UC Berkeley DCAC program model and is working with a cohort of Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) students at our school sites throughout Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. In our initial year, the UCSB DCAC program has placed a college adviser in five school sites across three school districts where there is a MESA program.
