2016-17 Student Affairs Annual Report

UC Berkeley Division of Student Affairs 2016-17 Annual Report


Count the ways we serve our campus and community.


Student Affairs is the gateway to the student experience. From recruiting to enrolling, to feeding and housing, to leadership and engagement opportunities — we put Berkeley’s students first.

We measure our success in the ways we embody a culture of care and foster growth during a student’s university journey. While the numbers speak for themselves, the collective staff spirit behind each student story ultimately promotes access, service, and engagement for each member of our community.

On behalf of our staff and students, thank you for your continuing support.
