At Berkeley Engineering, we don’t just talk about equity and inclusion — we have robust programs in place to bolster retention and a sense of belonging for every member of our community.
Berkeley Mentorship Cohort
The Berkeley Mentorship Cohort (BMC) is a year-long program that cultivates inclusivity by providing comprehensive peer and faculty mentorship. Our current mentoring cohorts are the Prep mentor family, the Women in Engineering family, and the Culture family that welcomes all incoming students who don’t identify as Prep or Women. We partner students with compatible mentors, then equip everyone with digital libraries of campus resources, literature reviews on effective mentoring practices, and platforms to share the wisdom of our whole engineering community.
Transfer mentor program
The Transfer Mentor Program (TMP) is a year-long program designed to provide individualized mentorship, professional development opportunities and academic support to junior transfer students at Berkeley Engineering. As part of this program, students build strong relationships with their mentors or mentees, increase their awareness of campus and off-campus resources, and gain the skills needed to succeed at Berkeley.
