  • Student tech support services
  • Software and device needs and challenges
  • Campus WiFi and connectivity needs
  • Remote instruction and student engagement
  • Cal Central and Student Information Systems
  • Information security
  • Berkeley mobile app
  • Data science expansion initiative
  • Tech innovation ideas
  • ...and much more...

The Council

The council is sponsored by the Chief Information Officer and is composed of 10-12 volunteer student members and 6 campus IT leaders. Learn more about our current council members and our historical membership.

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