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 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 have the opportunity to: 

  • 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
  • Win cool Cal swag

Admitted students will receive the registration links and information in an email from UC Berkeley. Admitted students are welcomed to register for as many events as they may be interested in attending! All events will be available on-demand 24 hours after the live event.

If you have any questions about accessing these events, or if you require accommodations in order to fully participate, please reach out to us at grad.diversity@berkeley.edu.
