The Fall semester has officially begun! As the UC Berkeley campus returns to in-person operations, campus leadership recognizes UC Berkeley staff and faculty for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic. On August 25th, in a message to the campus community, Chancellor Carol Christ wrote: “I could not be prouder of our amazing campus community that has come together in support of its members, our university and our academic mission.”
