Join the conversation!

It is a pivotal time in higher education and at UC Berkeley. In addition to a new chancellor, 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 (we’ll have cookies and coffee/tea) – and join the conversation.
