Student Services

The Berkeley Social Welfare Student Services Team provides strength-based advising in partnership with the student in a way that supports learning, exploration and personal development. We create an inclusive, student-centered and culturally sensitive environment that promotes social justice and equity. Whether you are an incoming freshman, transfer student, graduate student, or potential applicant, we offer a personalized and holistic approach to educational planning that encourages exploration, dispels myths and rumors, and promotes progress towards degree attainment.

We can help you:

  • Understand policies and procedures maintained by the School, Letters & Science, Graduate Division, and other campus units.

  • Connect to campus resources and enrichment opportunities that broaden awareness and increase experiential learning.

  • Find or create opportunities for community with your student peers, staff, and faculty.

  • Problem-solve for barriers that you may be facing that are hindering academic success and/or personal growth.

  • Develop short-term and long-term professional and educational goals through one-on-one and group advising opportunities
