e2 is neither an organization nor a club -- it is a conscious movement by students at the University of California, Santa Cruz towards owning and taking responsibility of our education.
Have you signed a pledgecard?
Student Initiated Outreach (SIO) programs are programs housed under our office that are run and led by students for students. In 2005, UCSC undergraduates voted in support of e2's SIO programs. For every $1 that undegraduate students pay towards Measure 15, the Chancellor matches that dollar with $1.50. The Chancellor's Match is the only funding from UCSC that e2 sees for its programs and it funds our SIO programs! SIO programs address low recruitment and retention rates of communities of color -- they increase diversity of the UCSC campus where historically there are low rates of communities of color. Participants that come up on e2's SIO programs would have not been able to afford to visit colleges on their own. Come by e2 today to save the Chancellor's Match and sign a pledgecard! If you are a faculty member and would like to formally endorse this match, please contact us as soon as possible.

E2 was a space in which I was able to work with others to develop grounding principles that helped me navigate my position as a community organizer as well as my life. I was able to build with others by having conversations that were both difficult to have and also transformative. Often times, the university does not provide the support to have conversations about racism, empowerment and what it means to be a student of color in academia; so having e2 as a space where we could have those conversations and to also do something about the injustices that happen within the university and outside of it taught me that I, along with others, have a duty to be protagonists in the movement for liberation.
