College & University Partnerships
Richmond Promise has formalized partnerships with the following colleges and universities that provide additional wraparound support and services to our Scholars.
Richmond College Scholar Networks
Beginning in January 2018, Richmond College Scholar Networks piloted at UC Berkeley and UC Davis to provide peer-led campus support networks. This Fall, Richmond Promise Scholars at 5 campuses – UC Berkeley, UC Davis, California State East Bay, UC San Diego, and SF State – are participating in these networks. Richmond College Scholars will offer each other support as they navigate the challenges often associated with the transition to college life and ensure incoming scholars are connected with the resources and knowledge on campus to make the most out of their college experience.
