A ‘Campus Conversation’ with Randy Katz

The Office of Communications and Public Affairs invites you to the semester’s third edition of Campus Conversations, our monthly series of Q&A sessions with Berkeley leaders.

On Monday, October 15, from noon to 1 p.m. in Alumni House, Vice Chancellor for Research Randy Katz – who took up his position at the helm of Berkeley’s research enterprise this past January – will outline his philosophy on academic inquiry at Berkeley, talk about research priorities in the campus’s strategic plan, discuss plans to expand undergraduate research, and of course take any and all questions you might have.

If we’re lucky, we might also hear the story of how Randy brought the internet to the White House: While on leave from Berkeley for government service in the early 1990s, he set up the first email accounts of former President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore, and built the original whitehouse.gov site.

As always, we’ll provide cookies, coffee, and tea. A Cal ID is required to attend this event.

After next week’s session with Randy, our final events of the semester will feature Vice Chancellor for University Development and Alumni Relations Julie Hooper on November 14 and Chancellor Carol Christ on December 12.
