D-Lab Workshop Empowers Students to Advance Social Justice in Data Science

Set to begin with its second iteration this June, the 8-week cohort-based online program provides a scaffolded, project-based learning environment — designed within a social justice framework — giving current Berkeley graduate students the ability to apply data science skills and tools in their individual fields of study whether they’re coming from public health, education, law, public policy or any discipline across campus.

Native/Indigenous graduate students help build a more culturally-responsive campus

Each November, we commemorate Native American Heritage Month by acknowledging and recognizing the heritage and contributions (past, present and future) of Native and Indigenous people. However, the various ways in which our Native/Indigenous students impact Berkeley extend well beyond a particular month or day. These students’ multifaceted experiences not only help to inform their individual identities, but also help build a more culturally-responsive campus community.

Berkeley Ph.D.’s in the field: Presenting research in Scotland

Berkeley graduate students are known for their exceptional accomplishments after completing their degrees. However, our graduate students are also engaged in exciting activities  throughout  the year, all while pursuing their academic goals. In preparation for the fall semester, we asked some of our students about their experiences beyond the campus.
