2020 was a momentous year for UC Berkeley's international students, scholars and employees. In addition to facing travel restrictions related to COVID-19, they also were confronted by an array of other regulatory changes that challenged their status in the US. Join us to learn about these policies and to hear how Berkeley International Office is working to help our international community navigate them.

Berkeley International Group events are designed for UC Berkeley faculty and staff and are not open to the general public.
The Berkeley International Group (BIG) is composed of UC Berkeley faculty and staff who are invited to meet monthly to collaborate and participate in informal discussions related to the international work we do across UC Berkeley. During the academic year, the group typically meets once a month, with the host(s) deciding upon the topic, date, time, and location of the meeting. Each meeting is typically hosted by a different unit on campus.
Since 2019, BIG is a recognized Staff Organization Community of Practice, which facilitates opportunities for staff to become more involved in campus life. Joining relevant communities of practice allows staff to continue to develop and broaden their skills, as well as meet people who have similar professional interests.
