Open to: All instructors, researchers, graduate students, and staff
The latest systemwide data from the UC Institutional Research & Academic Planning team at the UC Office of the President confirms that 39% of undergraduates and 23% of graduates at UC Berkeley are experiencing food Insecurity. Additionally, 5% of undergraduates and 6% of graduate students self-report experiencing homelessness at some point during the academic year.
Please join us to discuss the full student experience data, to learn about Berkeley's Basic Needs model, and to explore how we, as campus faculty and administrators, can help make a difference through our teaching, research, and work.
