Haas Alumni Network

The Berkeley-Haas Council

The Berkeley-Haas Council is comprised of alumni and student volunteers who serve as ambassadors by communicating with classmates (or fellow alumni at their corporation) about year-round activities, engagement opportunities, reunion events, lifelong learning programs, career services, and annual giving to the school. These volunteers also guide the planning and priorities of the Berkeley-Haas Alumni Network (B-HAN). The council meets formally three times a year (2 video calls, 1 all-day conference) to network, hear key school updates, learn from current faculty, and share ideas.
