Communications & Public Affairs


UC Berkeley’s Office of Communications and Public Affairs leads communications for the most elite public higher education institution in the world, conveying the quality, diversity, vitality, preeminence, and dedication to service of UC Berkeley. We reach diverse audiences and enhance relationships with constituents at all levels, including faculty, staff, students, alumni, donors, parents, visitors, the media, industry, research sponsors, educators, government leaders, and the general public. Our mission is to promote the University’s excellence in teaching, research, and public service, and inform stakeholders of our many contributions to the community — locally, nationally, and globally.
