The Student Organic Gardening Association wants to hear about your experiences and fond memories in the garden. If you have stories to share, a workshop you'd like to provide, or if you just want to say hi, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you!
In 2009-2010, all departments at UC Berkeley, including academic departments, took a permanent budget cut averaging 19 percent. Last year, approximately 600 staff positions were eliminated. Another 280 are slated for elimination this year. State funding for UC Berkeley is now less than federal funding, less than student fees, and less than private donations.
What you can do?
Please send an email telling your legislator to put a revenue measure on the ballot, so California voters can decide whether to maintain existing taxes that will help save UC Berkeley.
CNR has only 30 percent of our alumni email addresses. We are dependent upon email addresses and accurate contact information to carry-out our mission of serving society by generating and disseminating knowledge in the biological, physical, and social sciences in order to provide the tools both to protect the Earth's natural resources and ensure economic and ecological sustainability for future generations.
We aim to provide relevant content through the programs we administer at the College, and hope that while you are engaging with your alma mater, you are also engaging with like-minded alumni who can help us increase the number of email addresses in our system by forwarding this newsletter or the Stay Involved link onto any and all alumni you know.
Thank you for participating in the success of our Grass Roots Email Capture.
