About the BSCAA

Our History

The BSCAA is a 501(c)(3) charity that was founded in 1996. Originally known as the University Students’ Cooperative Alumni Association (USCA), we have transformed to and expanded to become the BSCAA.

Since our beginnings, we have helped thousands of alumni keep in touch and give back to the co-ops, and have raised more than $2 million in support of the BSC.

Our Mission

The BSCAA supports the Berkeley Student Cooperative (BSC) in its mission to provide affordable and cooperative living for students.

We raise money for the students, alumni, and co-op activities and events. We also provide professional and social opportunities for both alumni and current students, and keep this community connected internally and to other cooperatives around the world.
