Join the conversation!

It is a pivotal time in higher education and at UC Berkeley. There are many new campus leaders who are seeking new opportunities for Berkeley and working to address the challenges that we face. Now more than ever, it is important to understand the issues facing our campus and engage together in developing solutions.

Each month, a campus leader will share their vision for the future and invite you, the campus community, to ask questions and share your views. Bring your questions – and your lunch – and join the conversation.

Campus Conversation: Changemaking and the Berkeley Changemaker

Thursday, August 26, 2021
12-1pm

Now, more than ever, our world needs creative solutions from our Berkeley Changemakers. Berkeley Changemaker™ is a way to codify an essential part of what UC Berkeley has always stood for, and judging from student and faculty feedback, provides a future-oriented narrative that our whole campus can rally behind, humanists and scientists alike. Its focus on critical thinking, communication, and collaboration activates student’s passions and helps them develop a sharper sense of who they want to be and how to make that happen. Join moderator Oliver O’Reilly in conversation with Linda Burton, Jennifer Johnson-Hanks and Michael Lu about the Berkeley Changemaker.
