The UCLA Community Programs Office serves as an umbrella department for the Student Initiated Outreach Center, Student Retention Center, and twenty five student-initiated community service projects.
The CPO strives to increase students from underserved communities' access to higher education, retention in the university, and graduation rates while also serving as a conscious effort in the community, working toward the empowerment of all people.
The Student Risk Education Committee (SREC) is an official university wide committee within the Community Programs Office in Charge of recommending and implementing best practices in student risk education during community service activities on and off campus. SREC aims to produce a culture of safety as students contribute to the community.
SREC is one of the first student initiated student run committees that focuses on student risk and liability issues. SREC has received statewide recognition for being pioneers in student safety. Currently, UCOP is working with SREC to serve as a model for other student risk education committees to be implemented UC wide.
