Our Purpose

The Student Technology Council (STC) provides graduate and undergraduate students with the opportunity to advise the Chief Information Officer and other senior IT leaders about the comprehensive student technology experience. Areas of focus may include:

  • Remote instruction and student engagement
  • Academic technology and digital learning
  • Technology equity for underserved students
  • Student tech support services
  • Software and device needs and challenges
  • Campus WiFi and connectivity needs
  • Cal Central and Student Information Systems
  • Information security
  • Berkeley mobile app
  • Data science expansion initiative
  • Tech innovation ideas
  • ...and much more...

STC members provide critical insight, ideas and recommendations to senior IT leadership to ensure that large-scale IT decisions and initiatives reflect the broadest possible range of student input.

About Us

The Council

The council is based out of the Office of the Chief Information Officer and is comprised of 14 students and 5 campus IT leaders. Learn more about our current council members.

We go to great lengths to ensure the council is comprised of graduate and undergraduate students who represent the widest possible diversity of academic programs, campus affiliations and personal identities. They bring great eagerness to contribute feedback, ideas and support to the improvement of the student technology experience on campus.
