Sexual harassment and violence support and education
The University of California and the Department of Bioengineering are committed to creating and maintaining a community where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in an environment free of harassment, exploitation, or intimidation. Every member of the community should be aware that the University prohibits sexual harassment and sexual violence, and that such behavior violates both law and University policy.
We are dedicated to preventing and addressing sexual harassment and sexual violence. Find resources for everyone at the survivor support center.
The primary resource on scholarships and financial aid for UC Berkeley students is the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office.
More resources on private scholarships are available online, such as at Engineering Degree.
We suggest students always independently verify information from off-campus resources, which may or may not be up-to-date.
