Center for Educational Partnerships (CEP)

Since her undergraduate days at UC Berkeley, Claudia continues to be a role model and adviser for other low-income, first generation students like herself, nurturing hundreds of students and families to success after high school.  She forged a robust partnership with San Jose Unified and is a key resource for the organization and implementation of the growing “College Day” program, a model of how to engage entire cities in creating college-going culture, impacting thousands of students and families throughout Santa Clara County and other communities in CA.  Also in her 21 years with the Center for Educational Partnerships, Claudia is the primary writer and visionary for our Fast Forward to College: 25 minutes at a Time curriculum for students and their families.
