BFI Student Advisory Councils

An Undergraduate Council and Graduate Council help inform the Berkeley Food Institute’s work by giving vital guidance on our student-related programs and support. The chair of each advisory council serves on the BFI Executive Committee. As a Berkeley student, we invite you to join a council! Please contact the current chairs, who are also serving as Global Food Initiative Fellows.
