Congratulations newly admitted students! We’re thrilled that you are considering a program at the University of California, Berkeley for your graduate study. As a replacement for our Annual Diversity Day, we are sponsoring 11 virtual prerecorded events open to any admitted graduate student. 

We invite you to participate in a series of events and hear from the Dean of the Graduate Division, the Assistant Dean for Diversity, and members of the Office for Graduate Diversity about the unique opportunities that exist at Cal and the ways in which we are committed to your academic, professional, and social success. 

At Experience Diversity 2021, you’ll: 

  • Hear from current diverse students about graduate student realities 
  • Learn about housing options and navigating the best resources 
  • Gain insights about financial aid/fellowship opportunities 
  • Discover essential campus services and resources

Admitted students will receive the registration links and information in an email from UC Berkeley. Students are welcomed to register for some or all of our on-demand workshops.

If you have any questions about these events, or if you require accommodations, please reach out to us at
