Get SMART

Pairing summer research with mentoring opportunities is a smart combination with many benefits for participating graduate students.

Find Your Balance

Creating balance between academic work and personal refreshment is vital for keeping healthy and for succeeding in your goals over the long haul.

Welcome to the New Academic Year!

New and continuing graduate students will have new opportunities to develop skills, prepare for diverse careers and set goals with the help of the new Graduate Professional Services (GPS) Center, launching soon.

Summer Hums on Campus

The campus is humming with the excitement of more than 16,000 students here for Summer Sessions. When your paths intersect, enrich your own perspectives by taking time to meet new people from near and far, and share your Berkeley stories.

On Teaching and Mentoring

Teaching is an incredibly important part of Berkeley’s academic landscape, and this is the time of year when a variety of awards and ceremonies recognize exceptional accomplishments in teaching and mentoring.

First Impressions

In my first month as the new Dean of the Graduate Division, I've been crisscrossing the campus, visiting the 18 schools, colleges, meeting with deans, department chairs, senior administrators, faculty, students, and staff. I've been doing a lot of listening . . .

Welcome from Your New Dean

Happy New Year! I hope that the new semester finds you energized from the winter break, whether you spent it relaxing with family and friends, traveling, tearing down a ski slope, or doing something else that you love doing.
