Meet the Graduate Dean

These lively, sell-out events provide an opportunity for alumni and friends to meet each other and learn about some of the latest research trends at Berkeley. In addition to reconnecting with campus and networking with alumni, participants enjoy gourmet (often local and sustainable) food and wine in unique venues.
