Make a gift to the Division of Academic Planning now!
The Division of Academic Planning, under the leadership of Vice Provost Lisa Alvarez-Cohen, plays a critical administrative role on the Berkeley campus, overseeing the overall academic direction of the university, guiding the development of academic priorities and strategies, and managing a portfolio at the intersection of space and academic program planning.
Our team works in close collaboration with the colleges, schools, research centers, and institutes, playing an integrative role in support of academic needs and institutional goals. We serve as a creative thought partner across academic areas to foster synergistic collaboration and strategic planning to maximize the impact of the university’s contributions in research, education, and public service.
Your generous support of the Division of Academic Planning will allow the University to strengthen its infrastructure in order to expand its educational programs while enhancing the student experience. It will also enhance our efforts to launch new multi-disciplinary research initiatives aimed at solving society’s most pressing challenges — for example, curing cancer and developing global energy sustainability. At the same time, it will support the establishment of strategic partnerships with international universities, increasing our capacity to engage outstanding students and researchers from around the world to bolster Berkeley’s mission in education, research, and service.
