How to get involved with food systems at UC Berkeley

The University of California, Berkeley is uniquely positions as a public land-grant university in an urban environment. That means that UC Berkeley students can find a number of avenues to engage with food systems, from coursework and research to digging in the soil at one of our campus gardens.

If you’re a student at UC Berkeley interested in food systems, we can help connect you to opportunities. Our growing list of affiliated faculty teach food and ag courses in all eight of our partner schools. You can earn a Food Systems Minor or Graduate Certificate in Food Systems. You can join a food-related student group, or volunteer with Berkeley Student Farms, or attend one of our career panels.

Through our events and educational programing, we are always looking for ways to engage with our student community. The video below gives a primer on food systems work being done on campus, while the pages below give more information about some of the ways students can get involved.
