A Message from Chancellor Robert J. Birgeneau
Grand aspirations, rooted in a frontier past, built this university 140 years ago; grand actions today will secure our legacy of excellence and opportunity in the future. The Campaign for Berkeley calls upon every member of the Cal family to stand together to renew and extend UC Berkeley’s academic preeminence and global leadership.
We seek to raise $3 billion over the next five years to attract and retain the country’s most distinguished faculty, expand opportunities for exceptional students, support creative collaborations needed to solve pressing world issues, and strengthen UC Berkeley’s core mission to serve the societal good.
This landmark effort draws its strength from you — our extended Cal community of alumni, parents, friends, faculty, students, and staff. Your support will help secure our status as the nation’s top public teaching and research university for future generations.
Thanks to Berkeley, our lives, our society, and our world have been uplifted and enriched. Thanks to you, we have achieved so much already.
With warm regards,
