This is a critical moment for the University of California, Berkeley. Though we face challenges, we are moving forward with confidence to ensure that Berkeley remains the crown jewel of public higher education, the driver of innovation, the brains behind our knowledge economy, and the fuel of upward mobility.
I want to share this short video with you. I hope that it inspires you to join us in supporting the future of Berkeley, the world’s greatest public research and teaching university.
I’m worried that an institution of this caliber would even put out such a video (well, Yale did this) but I understand that the university wants more donations and that the voters of the state of California want increased funding for schools but they don’t want to pay for it… This is the official link for the site.
