Freshman and Sophomore Seminars: Make a Difference

August 27, 2018

Dear Colleagues,

You can help new students become active members of Berkeley's intellectual community by teaching one of UC Berkeley’s Freshman and Sophomore Seminars.

Freshman and Sophomore Seminars provide an unparalleled opportunity for faculty from across campus to explore a scholarly topic with small groups of lower-division students. Through teaching a seminar, you can give students an early introduction to research and scholarship while inspiring student inquiry, creativity, and discovery.

Election Day 2018

August 8, 2018

Dear Colleagues,

This year Election Day is on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 and we encourage all members of our community who are eligible to exercise their right to vote.

Students in the ASUC are working to increase student engagement and voter participation in the election, and welcome faculty support of their efforts. As you plan your fall courses, please be mindful of Election Day and consider scheduling midterms and other major assignments on alternative dates.

Thank you for your consideration and support.
