Right after “smart” and “welcoming,” diverse is one of the first words our students, faculty and staff use to describe Berkeley-Haas. There are many aspects to our diversity, from race and ethnicity to professional expertise and research interests, to how people like to spend their free time. It encompasses families and faith, and students from other countries and cultures.
Haas faculty members are committed to outstanding teaching and dedicated to seeking new knowledge, ideas, and best practices. Our two Nobel Prizes in economics, including the most recent in 2009 to Professor Oliver Williamson, are proof of the profound nature of faculty research. Our staff reflects the diversity of the Bay Area and shares our passion for delivering outstanding services tailored to our students’ needs.
Once they graduate, our alumni add yet another layer of diversity, employed as they are in companies and enterprises in every sector and on every continent.
Director of Diversity Initiatives Eric Abrams is helping Berkeley-Haas challenge the status quo by engaging with communities of all sorts to attract students and scholars who excel at learning from and teaching each other.
