Berkeley Haas has three primary alumni volunteer boards as well as several research center boards.

Advisory Council

Berkeley Haas Alumni 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 (BHAN). 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.

Haas Alumni Diversity Advisory Council

Council members support efforts to enhance diversity of all types within the Berkeley Haas community. Founded in 2012, the Council brings together a dozen or so alumni who represent all degree programs and a variety of professional experiences. The Council meets three or four times a year to provide feedback to the director of diversity initiatives and the dean.

The Council is a forum to discuss, analyze, and share their insights and experiences. Volunteers discuss experiential learning programs, curriculum, the school’s culture, and social networking platforms as they relate to enhancing diversity at Berkeley Haas. Its members will “interpret the business community” for the school to ensure we understand how our efforts will be viewed by different business sectors.

For more information on the Council, please contact Marco Lindsey.
