How to Take Advantage of Your Free Unit:
Once you are ready to select classes, please move forward and enroll in any courses that you would like to take this summer. Once you are enrolled, a fee waiver will be applied to your account. This fee waiver will reduce your total fees by one unit ($419). You may not see the waiver reflected immediately, but please check back after 24 hours.
Please note, this $419 fee waiver is only applicable if you remain enrolled in at least one unit this summer. If you do not enroll in courses this summer or you drop all units, you will not be permitted to keep the $419. If you have any questions around the free unit or your eligibility, please reach out to: email@example.com.
The Berkeley Changemaker(TM) codifies what Berkeley has always stood for: an ethos of questioning the status quo and thinking, and acting, beyond oneself. An early inspiration was the course, "Becoming a Changemaker," taught by Alex Budak. This course enrolled roughly fifty students, from 17 majors, and earned a student course evaluation of 6.7 out of 7.0. We are thrilled that Alex Budak brings his enthusiasm and expertise as the lead instructor for our Berkeley Changemaker gateway Course 12.
We welcome all matriculating Cal undergraduate students into our courses. You can find a listing of all current and upcoming courses, as well as available syllabi, on the "Berkeley Changemaker Courses" page.
Unfortunately, at this time, we do not have courses available for non-matriculated UC Berkeley students.
Yes, our first offering took place on October 28 in which over 120 staff members enrolled from across UC Berkeley's campus. Further workshops are under development and will be announced on the "Berkeley Changemaker Courses" tab. In the meantime, if you'd like to learn more, please write to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks and Go Bears!
Thank you for your interest. We are in the process of developing Berkeley Changemaker offerings to our alumni. You can learn more by visiting the California Alumni Association Berkeley Changemaker site.
