Student Engagement



Educational Initiatives


educational initiatives

Undergraduate Education (UE) creates initiatives to promote undergraduate student success across the campus. Initiatives have included a wide array of student and faculty activities, such as Undergraduate Research in the Community, academic internships, student-initiated R’Courses, and upper-level capstone experiences.

Community-Engaged Learning

The Office of Undergraduate Education is partnering with Student Life, the Graduate School of Education, the Career Center, Riverside Unified School District, and The Community Foundation to expand and track opportunities for students to get involved in community service, service learning through courses, community academic internships, and community-based research. Please contact us via email at servicelearning@ucr.edu.

R’Courses

R’Courses are 1 unit, S/NC offerings facilitated by UCR undergraduate students. Each course has a faculty instructor of record who provides mentoring and support behind the scenes. They are designed to develop leadership skills, innovate the undergraduate curriculum, and promote democratic, experiential education on campus. The Office of Undergraduate Education works with the R’Course Governing Board to review R’Course proposals, coordinate course activities with academic departments, facilitate student recruitment, and provide student facilitator training. For more information about R’Courses, please email rcourses@ucr.edu (951-827-7739).
