Underground Scholars Initiative at UC Riverside

Underground Scholars Initiative (USI) is student operated and is composed of nearly all UC campuses statewide. As a statewide collective, USI works in cohesion with RUS. The two organizations, RUS & USI, are separate and aligned. From our allies to the north, such as UC Berkeley, UC Santa Barbara, and UC Santa Cruz, to our allies closer to home; for example, UCLA, UC San Diego, and UC Irvine, our statewide collective stands in solidarity with one another. 

If you are interested in learning more about Underground Scholars at UC Riverside and would like to become involved with our mission to recruit, retain, and advocate for the higher education of formerly incarcerated and system-impacted students, please contact the student organization at undergroundscholarsucr@gmail.com.
