Our Undergraduate Diversity Mission

No matter where you come from, you belong here. Berkeley CEE is dedicated to creating and maintaining an inclusive environment in which students can be and celebrate their whole selves. We believe that working effectively with people from different backgrounds is just as important as gaining a strong technical foundation.
