UC Riverside Undergraduate Education is launching a speaker series on student success that will kick off July 11 with Victor Moreira, coordinator of Black student success at UCR, at the XCITE Commons at the Rivera Library.

Moreira’s talk is titled “Black Student Success…A Collective Effort.” Future topics will include serving first-generation students, the power of peer mentoring, strengthening the ecosystem of writing support for UCR undergraduates, inclusive teaching, and transforming student outcomes via high impact practices.  

The series focuses on various student success issues that intersect with the Undergraduate Education division. It will spotlight many of the university-wide programs and initiatives led out of UE and will serve as a platform to both share information with the campus and build opportunities to brainstorm and collaborate with campus colleagues on student success endeavors.  

“The Speaker Series will spotlight UE programs and provide attendees with the opportunity to learn, dialogue, and collaborate with colleagues, all for the purpose of generating UCR student success,” said Louie Rodríguez, vice provost and dean of Undergraduate Education.

Future speaker events will be held in October and December with the series continuing through the winter and spring 2024 quarters and beyond.
