  • University Development and Alumni Relations (UDAR) IT has a dotted reporting line to IST. UDAR IT supports the operation of UC Berkeley advancement by managing the Cal Advancement Data Systems (CADS), the University’s donor and alumni database, and providing the infrastructure necessary for conducting marketing and communication, fundraising, and donor and gift stewardship with the campus’s various constituents. We accomplish these goals by providing and maintaining an integrated ecosystem of information delivery and database management systems.

The Research, Teaching, and Learning (RTL) organization combines the following teaching and research support groups to improve efficiency, encourage collaboration, and create opportunities to leverage existing resources in new and innovative ways:

  • Academic Innovation Studio (AIS) brings together faculty, researchers, graduate students, and service providers to inspire and support experimentation, connect people, and share ideas in an innovative space. Part of the Division of the Vice Chancellor for Undergraduate Education, the AIS serves instructors and researchers across the entire campus community.
  • Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) partners with faculty to inspire, enrich, and innovate Berkeley’s collective practice and pursuit of teaching excellence.
  • Digital Learning Services (DLS) provides digital learning design, development and delivery services for UC Berkeley faculty, departments and professional schools. From fully online to hybrid and blended digital learning, we partner with CTL, ETS, and RIT to fully support successful teaching and learning in the digital environment. 
  • Educational Technology Services (ETS) enhances and supports the UC Berkeley academic experience by providing essential, responsive and innovative technology services.
  • Research IT (RIT) provides research computing technologies, consulting, and community for the Berkeley campus. Our fundamental goal is to help campus faculty and students with their research by providing the best IT tools as inexpensively as possible.
