Campus Climate

Our mission is to create a campus where all Berkeley students, faculty, and staff feel respected, supported, and valued.

Campus climate is "the current attitudes, behaviors and standards of faculty, staff, administrators and students concerning the level of respect for individual needs, abilities and potential."

— Susan Rankin, UC-wide Campus Climate Study Team

Our Journey

In March 2014, the UC Office of the President released the results of the UC-systemwide Campus Climate survey. Chancellor Dirks immediately announced a series of initial steps and decisions in support of our goals and aspirations regarding campus climate at Berkeley. He subsequently awarded funding through the campus budget process to the Division of Equity & Inclusion to support and implement new projects and ideas.

Make the Most of Your Moment is a campaign created to inspire dialogue among members of the Berkeley community. We invite students, staff, and faculty to join our conversations and action to improve our campus climate!
