Communications

Join the BSA email list

The BSA Communications Team assists with publicity for BSA events using our website, social media including FacebookLinkedIn, and Twitter @UCBerkeleyStaff, as well as our BSA email list. Our Team collects and distributes information about events and news of interest to the UCB staff and sends out a bi-weekly email blast to the BSA email list. Additionally, we contribute to the curation and maintenance of BSA's historical documents housed in the University Archives of The Bancroft Library.

A monthly newsletter is in the works, but we need your help. If you'd like to write original content that highlights staff events, projects, programs, achievements, groups, etc., please email bsa_comms@berkeley.edu with your idea(s).

Team members meet bi-weekly in person or virtually and assist with communications and publicity between meetings as needed. Volunteers are welcome for a variety of roles including
  • posting content and/or analyzing usage for BSA's social media accounts; 
  • creating content for our various communication channels;
  • photographing and reporting on BSA and campus events for staff.

Participation:

By volunteering for this committee you can gain experience with a variety of current communication and publicity tools, and gain campuswide exposure as you grow your skills.

The activities and priorities of this committee are determined by the committee lead in consultation with and approval by the BSA Chair/GC.  The extent of our activities primarily depends on the availability of volunteers to undertake and see projects through. The more people we have the more we can do.

While we can provide some training and mutual assistance between committee members, our meetings are generally used for planning or hands-on work toward our goals. We recommend exploring the many campus resources available to you while learning web and communication techniques and technologies. There are a variety of online classes (Lynda.com) books and other resources available through the "UC Learning Center" or Campus Libraries as well as the Berkeley Communications Conference website.
