New Professionals Network

The Berkeley Staff Assembly New Professionals Network (NPN) welcomes those newer to the UC Berkeley campus by providing opportunities for professional and social networking with colleagues from across campus. The NPN collaborates with other BSA subcommittees to host a wide variety of events and create a forum wherein new UC Berkeley professionals can come together to expand their networks, share knowledge and best practices, and learn from experienced staff members about building successful careers at Cal. NPN was formerly the Berkeley Young Professionals Network.
