I worry that the budget cuts have stretched Berkeley too far that they are causing a decline in the quality of education and research at Berkeley. My impressions are from the news, not from knowing first-hand.INDUSTRY PERCEPTIONS OF BERKELEY#13

The public nature of Berkeley is what sets it apart. There is something very special about Berkeley because it has high academic standards and great faculty. The problem right now is the CA state and its damage to the UC system in general.

Phase III - ExpressCreative messaging toolkit with guidelines for use across the universityJuly - September 2012

Specific recommendations across all media - print, web, mobile, video

Overall ObjectiveThe goal is one consistent, compelling story.Consistency is built through the deliberate coordination of communications elements.These elements define what we say and how we say it. 17RolloutImplementation should begin in the fall.
