Inclusive Excellence Hub

The Inclusive Excellence Hub

A space for you.

The new Inclusive Excellence Hub at UC Berkeley is a unique, welcoming venue where underrepresented graduate students can find camaraderie and build multi-disciplinary networks of their peers. Located in a newly renovated building, the Hub is the first campus-wide community space exclusively dedicated to increasing excellence through diversity and belonging among Berkeley’s graduate students. During Summer 2023, the Hub will be closed and going through more renovations and upgrades. Thank you for your patience.
