Dear Campus Colleagues,

With the November/December/January holiday season just around the corner, we are writing today to share an outline of service impacts that the UC Berkeley campus may experience related to some of our divisions operating on a modified schedule and/or closed during certain periods. Consistent with previous years, we want to allow staff the opportunity to take accrued vacation time, rest, rejuvenate, and ramp up for 2024.

bIT Colleagues,

As we kick off Staff Appreciation Week, I want to extend my deepest gratitude for your continued resilience and hard work in diving into another academic year.

Colleagues,

Resilient, rising, and reinspired was the theme for this year’s UC Tech conference which brought over 1,000 technologists from across the UC system together both on the Berkeley campus and virtually. I think the theme also describes how the last year has played out and how we have approached our campus IT priorities: remaining resilient and making good progress on key initiatives while rising to meet some unexpected challenges.
