The Berkeley Blog

University of California, Berkeley

Today, UC Berkeley is widely known as the preeminent public university in the United States, and as the home of the Free Speech Movement. The Berkeley Blog bridges these two. Our authors include some 300 UC Berkeley faculty members, graduate students and other scholars, who share their thoughts on topical national and global issues with which we all grapple. This blog serves as a virtual blackboard for ideas and expertise found on the Berkeley campus.
