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.

If you are a representative of a staff group that would like to be included on this site, please send an e-mail to StaffOrgs Council with "Register a New StaffOrg" in the subject line. Receipt confirmation and a registration form will be sent within 48 hours.

Currently the Staff Organizations and the Communities of Practice are sponsored by Sidalia G. Reel, Director of Staff Diversity Initiatives; Jo Mackness, Interim AVC Human Resources; and Angela Stopper, Director of Staff Learning and Development. The Special Interest Groups do not require designated sponsorship.
