UC Berkeley has a diverse array of staff organizations, each with its own mission and focus. The staff organizations are a collective of associations that offer opportunities for UC Berkeley staff to engage in collective community with others of similar interests.

The officially recognized affiliations are distributed among three distinct categories:

All keep you informed about important staff issues and maintain a network of support that is in keeping with UC Berkeley’s Principles of Community and its overall mission.

Currently the Staff Organizations and the Communities of Practice are sponsored by Lasana O. Hotep, Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging and Eugene Whitlock, Chief People & Culture Officer. The Special Interest Groups do not require designated sponsorship.
