History of Project:

For the last two years the Division of Student Affairs has been working on a strategic plan to prepare for the future of Berkeley. We sat down with students and staff and asked them to dream big and imagine an ideal student and staff experience for the future. After evaluating the data and reaching out to constituents and stakeholders the division has set its focus towards one staff and one student goal, Cohesive & Supportive Culture and Belonging & Community respectively.

Updates from the Belonging & Community Team


October 2014: Subgroups have formed to address four key areas

  • Complementing the Academic Mission 
  • ​Events
  • Space: Virtual & Physical
  • Underrepresented Populations

Each subgroup is led by a member of the larger Belonging and Community team. The subgroups are meeting routinely to finalize membership and identify campus partners who should be invited to participate in these conversations.
