L&S Curricular Connections


Support the Letters & Science Leadership Fund

The Letters & Science Leadership Fund creates learning experiences that stay with our students for their entire lives.

Donor contributions make possible captivating seminars, world-class research programs and cross-disciplinary coursework that produce moments of discovery for thousands of undergraduates each semester. Students develop the critical thinking skills and open-mindedness that characterize an L&S education, becoming society’s connectors, synthesizers, and innovators.

Against a backdrop of shrinking state funding, your annual support is more important than ever to help our students make the most of their precious time at Berkeley.

"My interactions with those beginning students were so satisfying. I saw several of them mature into young adults in their following years at Cal. A few of them ended up doing research projects in my lab and one is graduating this year to go off to graduate school. I love my research program, but the teaching is what may have a more enduring impact—the power of this education to transform lives and futures. Just by chance, my freshman seminar was on Tuesday, the day after [my] Nobel announcement. My class showed up with no fanfare other than that a photographer had been assigned to cover my class for that day. The students said nothing until I ended the hour, then they gathered together to sign two terrific cards including one with a drawing of the Nobel medal."
