Faculty and Graduate Students: Igniting the Core

Stellar faculty are at the center of Berkeley’s far-reaching light — educating scientists, artists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and changemakers who will one day power our economies and shape our communities. While the number of undergraduates at Berkeley increased by 7,500 between 2006 and 2019, the total number of full-time faculty remained around 1,500. The campaign’s top priority is to add 100 tenure-track faculty positions and provide sufficient resources for them to conduct critical research.
