Mission Statement

"The mission of the UC Merced Center for Educational Partnerships is to provide student, school, and parent-centered services that ultimately result in students having the greatest number of postsecondary choices from the widest array of options upon graduation."


The UC Merced CEP was established to effect long-range improvement in the education of Central San Joaquin Valley students and ultimately increase the number of students eligible to attend an institution of higher education.

All UC Merced CEP programs seek to increase University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU) competitive eligibility and admission rates in the Central San Joaquin Valley.
