The Mission of the New Lower Sproul
UC Berkeley is revitalizing a historic heart of student life: Lower Sproul Plaza. In a major initiative galvanized and led by students themselves, Lower Sproul will be renovated and rebuilt to create a vibrant and modern campus gathering place for generations to come. The new Lower Sproul will become an inviting, green gateway to our world-class university.
What is now an imposing, under-utilized student union will be transformed into a transparent glass pavilion symbolizing and facilitating openness; the seismically poor building that now houses hundreds of student organizations will be razed, redesigned, and rebuilt; the plaza itself will teem with new retail shops and new energy, showcasing Berkeley’s innovation to the world.
With an emphasis on student leadership and public service, student programs within Lower Sproul will also be enhanced. These include: Student Government, the Cal Corps Public Service Center, Center for Student Leadership and the Career Center.
Students have longed for a student union that is worthy of their leading public university and today, this vision for enriching student life is finally within reach.
