Welcome to the New Professionals Network!

We are a committee within the Berkeley Staff Assembly (BSA) that welcomes New Professionals to Berkeley. 

Our goal is to create a forum, wherein UC Berkeley's early career professionals and recent hires from across campus can come together to expand their networks, exchange professional development opportunities, and share their experiences and knowledge about building a career at Cal with one another. We plan monthly lunch meetings, networking happy hours, and are looking to expand professional development for our members.

If you have ideas, questions, or would like to be involved with the NPN Committee, please contact Larissa ( Please join us at our General Brown Bag Lunch Meetings and our Happy Hours (dates and locations listed above)!

To join the mailing list for event updates and meeting location announcements, send an email to Larissa with the subject line “Subscribe NPN”. We look forward to seeing you soon!
