Chancellor's Office

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,

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.

Chancellor's Office

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.

Berkeley News

Dear campus community,

Today we join together with millions of people around our country and the world to condemn the horrific and senseless violence in a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday. On behalf of the UC Berkeley community, I extend our sincere condolences and strong support to the relatives, friends and colleagues of the eleven Jewish Americans who were senselessly slaughtered in their house of worship. We are all members of the extended, global family that mourns their loss.
