SLC Writing Prog

2) Start a DeCal

Start a DeCal

Greetings Golden Bears!

Congratulations on completing the first few weeks of the Fall semester! As you transition back to in-person learning, (re)discover the campus, and strengthen your connection to Cal, we encourage you to facilitate your own DeCal for Spring 2022!

What is a DeCal? DeCal courses are student-run classes that cover topics typically not taught in Cal’s curriculum. Through the DeCal program, Cal students, just like you, propose and facilitate unit-bearing courses on topics they are passionate about, while adding over 300 classes to Cal’s curriculum each year. Leading your own DeCal course is an excellent way to share your passions with peers, build an intellectual community, and stretch your facilitation skills.

How do you get started on creating & facilitating your own DeCal? The Undergraduate Course Facilitator Training & Resources (UCFTR) Program at the Student Learning Center (SLC) is here to support you in getting familiar with the DeCal proposal process, fulfilling your mandatory training requirement, and tapping into your potential to become an effective DeCal facilitator.

UCFTR Services for Spring 2022 DeCal facilitators is now underway–check out the UCFTR website to learn more! Email slc-ucftr@berkeley.edu or stop by Zoom Drop-Ins Mondays & Thursdays 4-5 pm with any questions.

Excited to support you on your DeCal creation process!

The Politics, Philosophy & Law (PPL) Minor is excited to host Berkeley City Councilmember Rigel Robinson for an informal discussion on public service as a career, on Monday, Sept. 27th, at 5pm.

Rigel is a recent UC Berkeley graduate, and the youngest person on Berkeley City Council. Rigel will talk about his own path into public service, and the different opportunities available to college students and graduates. He’ll also be happy to talk more broadly about public policy issues he has been involved in, such as his proposal to eliminate the Berkeley police’s role in traffic enforcement, and ending exclusionary zoning (both of which have made national headlines).

Come join us Monday, September 27, at 5 PM.  The event is on Zoom and open to the entire Berkeley undergrad community.

This will be a good occasion to learn about the PPL Minor for any interested students.
