Dear Campus Community,

In a previous message about the incidents of Zoom bombing on campus, we committed to making improvements to our Zoom service in order to strengthen security and privacy settings as mechanisms to mitigate further acts of Zoom bombing. We are writing to provide an update to you about the specifics of those changes, which will be rolled out between now and the start of the fall semester.

Women first were admitted to the University of California as students just two years after its founding in 1868. That’s notable, when you consider that many elite private universities across the country didn’t admit women until women had won the right to vote in 1920 through the ratification of the 19th Amendment.

This year, UC Berkeley is commemorating the 150th anniversary of the UC Board of Regents’ resolution to open the university’s doors to women — and “on equal terms” with men.

Dear colleagues,

This is a reminder to individuals who are responsible for critical applications on campus using the Chart of Accounts (COA) API to inform you that calls to that API will require authentication beginning in September. Actions outlined below need to be completed by 5 p.m. PDT, Friday, Aug. 28, to avoid authentication errors in your application.

IT Colleagues and Campus Partners,

As we prepare to ramp up technical support for instruction at the beginning of fall semester, we are implementing our customary IT systems freeze on production changes for UC Berkeley systems. This freeze enables us to provide optimal IT service and systems performance for our campus and minimize potential disruptions during this peak period of activity when our services are in greater demand.

We’re well past 100 days of the COVID-19 quarantine and still counting. Everything we thought we knew, including how to balance work and life, has required us to change, at least for now. And while we yearn for an end to things like supply shortages and event cancellations, there are some positive work adaptations that we might actually want to keep; that have made things, surprisingly, better.

With the fall 2020 semester beginning remotely, a new UC Berkeley program that a campus official calls an example of “Berkeley at its finest,” is providing an extraordinary $4.6 million in support for students who will attend class, do assignments and take tests from home — but who lack reliable laptops, Wi-Fi and other technology.
