A Message From Kelsey Finn
Working with the ASUC, Graduate Assembly, ASUC Auxiliary, and Division of Student Affairs, it is evident that a fierce dedication for betterment is a common thread throughout UC Berkeley. This dedication is what carries Cal into the future with a vision and mission to enrich the student experience through exceptional services, programs, and facilities. »
The ASUC Auxiliary’s new, unified LEAD Center is a one-stop shop for UC Berkeley students looking to find leadership training, get involved with organizations, or receive advising for student groups. Located in 102 Hearst Gym, the LEAD Center brings together the staff and functions formerly provided separately by the Center for Student Leadership, the Office of Student Affairs, and the Graduate Assembly business office, with the goal of delivering more efficient leadership development and comprehensive student-group advising.
The long-desired overhaul of Lower Sproul and the dream of a new, state-of-the-art Student Union is beginning to take shape. The redesigned complex is envisioned as the true and beating heart of student life on campus, a vibrant hub and central meeting place that will truly meet student needs.
Architects’ renderings for the $223 million renovation show a light-filled area that’s open, inviting and bustling with activity 24/7. Eshleman Hall, will be replaced by a lower building veiled in glass to expose the busy hive inside — students meeting, studying, dancing, eating, meditating and just hanging out.
The transparency and permeability will carry through to the design of an addition to the plaza side of the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union, where walls of glass will put a new campus living room, café and multicultural center on full view. Spaces in Cesar Chavez that frame the north edge of the plaza would be enlivened by visible study centers available to students late into the night.
