Dear campus community,

In the next ten years, Berkeley will - even more than it does today - push the boundaries of knowledge, challenge convention, and expand opportunity to create the leaders of tomorrow. To do this, we will invest heavily in the student experience, make new commitments within Berkeley’s research and academic spheres, and strive to make our institution a more welcoming and supportive place for people of all backgrounds.

Dear Students, Staff and Faculty,

One of my most important goals for Berkeley is to advance and expand diversity on this campus, in its broadest sense and in every form.

Dear colleagues,

When people think of Berkeley’s mission of teaching, research, and public service, their minds often instinctively turn only to professors and students in lecture halls and labs. Yet the efforts of thousands of dedicated, passionate, and enterprising campus staff play an equally important role in helping us achieve our goals.

Dear Campus Community,

In recent days the pall of heavy smoke over the Bay Area has served as a constant reminder of the tragic, destructive fires enveloping communities across our state. The number of lives, homes, and businesses lost is staggering and unprecedented. The efforts of thousands of firefighters who are putting themselves in harm’s way are nothing short of heroic. On behalf of our campus, I offer our sincere condolences to the loved ones of those who have perished, our support for the injured and displaced, and our appreciation to the first responders.

Chancellor's Office

Dear Campus Community,

I am writing to update you on the latest air quality readings, decisions regarding tomorrow’s class schedule, and the status of Saturday’s Big Game.
