A: As the official student government for the College of Engineering, ESC works to foster a safe and inclusive environment that provides equal opportunities for the enrichment of extracurricular experiences of ALL engineering students. With principles focused on equity, inclusion, safety, and transparency, ESC’s new Affiliation Process is designed to promote a healthier climate within the engineering clubs on campus. Our ultimate hope is that clubs, through this new process, will re-examine their current culture and make changes that positively impact student life at Berkeley Engineering. In exchange for their commitment to this process, affiliated organizations will receive benefits from ESC, including funding, training, and publicity. To learn more, click here!
