Berkeley’s impact around the world
When it comes to global issues, Berkeley is no ivory tower where theories are merely studied. It’s a launching pad for solutions — bringing students, faculty, and alumni face to face with challenges ranging from political turmoil to unsafe water to dwindling biodiversity. Reflecting Berkeley’s public mission to serve the greater good, grad students are opening new hospitals in rural Ecuador. Faculty are fostering understanding of democracy movements and spotlighting immigrant rights. Alumni are helping world leaders fight hunger and safeguarding our cultural treasures. Back at home, places such as International House cultivate ideas and perspectives from around the world. These far-reaching projects show how Berkeley’s impact spreads well beyond its gates.
