Berkeley Discovery is a campus-wide initiative to transform undergraduate education at UC Berkeley.


Born out of the 2018 strategic plan, Berkeley Discovery envisions a new framework for the undergraduate experience where students embark on a journey of creative exploration from the moment they arrive on campus, continuing with immersive and inquiry-driven learning across the curriculum, and culminating in a personalized discovery project, whether original research, artistic production, entrepreneurial initiative, or community-engaged service. 

Berkeley Discovery is stewarded by the Vice Chancellor for Undergraduate Education and coordinated by the Center for Undergraduate Discovery team. We invite the campus community to read more about the initiative, explore resources for students as well as faculty and departments, and learn about the Berkeley Discover Departmental Innovation Award Program launched in Fall 2020.
