In May, the University of California, Berkeley's Destination College Advising Corps (DCAC) held a celebration in honor of 15 Years of Empowering Underrepresented Students!
In the words of DCAC's leadership, "UC Berkeley's Destination College Advising Corps proudly commemorates a significant milestone, celebrating 15 years of dedicated service in transforming the lives of underrepresented, low-income, and first-generation college-bound students.
