It is an exciting time to be a member of the Cal community! The Associate Vice Chancellor and Dean of Students (AVC/DOS) team is here to assist you in making the most out of your Cal experience. We provide a variety of programs, services, events, and resources to assist you in your personal and professional development. Although UC Berkeley may seem like a big campus to navigate we encourage you to explore the wide variety of way to connect with your peers and get involved at Cal.


We also understand that sometimes things don’t go as well as planned and you may need some additional assistance. We are here to assist you when you have questions or are experiencing challenges that might prevent you from flourishing here at Cal. University services include:
