Investing in Resilience during COVID

In this unprecedented year, we are committed to ensuring that every  CEE student has the premier experience we all expect at Berkeley.

Today’s significant challenges require significant investments. CEE’s Academy of Distinguished Alumni is leading the way to ensure excellence, access, and resilience for the department in the face of COVID-19.

Your gift to the Department of CEE Fund will help our faculty create top-quality online courses, supply instructors with needed devices for teaching, equip our classrooms with more and better technology, and create safe teaching spaces.

See announcement [pdf].

Thank you for your partnership in supporting CEE!
