Dear campus community,

The Free Speech Commission invites comment from faculty, staff, and especially students on Monday, February 5 from 10:30 am to 12 noon in the ASUC Senate Chambers (fifth floor of Eshleman Hall) to address the following questions:

1. Should policies regarding the uses of Lower and Upper Sproul (including the Savio Steps) by registered student organizations (RSO’s) and non-affiliate members of the public be revisited?   If so, how do you recommend the policies be changed?

Dear UC Berkeley Campus Community: 

As you may already be aware, recent news reports are warning of possible Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) plans to target Northern California for a broad immigration enforcement “sweep”. To date, the Department of Homeland Security has not commented on or confirmed these reports, and we currently have no information suggesting that our campus, in particular, could be targeted. However, we believe it is still important for all of us to be informed and prepared in order to support and protect vulnerable members of our community.

Dear campus community,

It is a time of great change both at Berkeley and across all of higher education. In this environment, I believe that we must collectively establish a cohesive, well-reasoned, and ambitious vision of what our university should be in order to properly set institutional priorities and determine campus investments.

Dear faculty and staff,

Much change is afoot at Berkeley, as we work to eliminate our budget deficit as well as set the campus on a path toward continued academic and research excellence. These efforts are being directed by a host of campus leaders, some of whom have been at Berkeley for a long time and others who have just recently arrived, but all of whom are committed to engaging with the campus to develop solutions that serve our institution and community.

Dear campus community,

We write to you today deeply concerned about recent reports of raids being planned by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to arrest undocumented individuals in Northern California. We know that this is causing a great deal of anxiety among people in our campus community who may be affected by these actions.

We will always stand in unwavering support for all of our students and colleagues, regardless of immigration status, and will work on several fronts to support them.

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

I am pleased to inform you that we have finalized the terms of the Major Events policy that governs planning for and presentation of Major Events sponsored by Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) and other non-departmental users.

It is a pivotal time in higher education and at UC Berkeley. In addition to a new chancellor, there are many new campus leaders who are seeking new opportunities for Berkeley and working to address the challenges that we face. Now more than ever, it is important to understand the issues facing us and engage together in developing solutions. Each month, a campus leader will share their vision for the future and invite you to ask questions and share your views. Bring your questions – and your lunch (we'll have cookies and coffee/tea) – and join the conversation.

Dear campus community,

The campus Free Speech Commission will be holding its first public hearing on Friday, January 19 from 10:30 am to 12 noon in the ASUC Senate Chambers (fifth floor of Eshleman Hall). The Commission invites faculty, staff, and students to share their experiences of free speech-related events last September and their thoughts about how best to minimize the impact of future events without compromising free speech or public safety.

To our campus community,

As has been reported widely in the news, there are key security vulnerabilities for computers, phones, and tablets using major brand CPU processors, including Intel and AMD. Microsoft and Apple computer platforms are affected, as well as Android and iOS phone platforms. These vulnerabilities open the door to the possibility that passwords and other data could be stolen from your devices. The vulnerabilities affect the operating systems, web browsers, and firmware (software that the computer hardware has built into it).

Dear Campus Community,

We write today to encourage all of you – faculty, staff and students – to set aside time to take an extremely important new survey, the My Voice survey, that we hope will provide the campus with the insights and information needed to more effectively prevent and respond to issues of sexual harassment and violence.
