President's Message

Dear Cal Alumni and Friends,

No matter where you are in the world, Berkeley is about belonging.  And here in France, it’s about belonging to a welcoming community of fellow Bears just as curious, inquisitive and passionate as you.

Whether you are French, American or from other diverse horizons, we invite you to renew your relationship with Berkeley. Maintaining your connection to Cal is just as much about benefiting from the richness of a university placed at the heart of one of the most vibrant and innovative regions in the world as it is about acting as an ambassador for a global, 21st century Berkeley deeply embedded in the fabric of international exchange.

For those whose journey has led them to Paris, and more broadly, France, we truly hope that the Berkeley Club of France continues to reinforce your ties to not only the university but also your fellow alumni, whose experiences at Berkeley and beyond represent ample opportunities to forge an ever-stronger community.

It is in this spirit that the Berkeley Club of France offers an array of forums and conferences, social hours, collaborative events with the French American Foundation and a wealth of other university alumni clubs, and even Big Game watching parties. 

Of course, none of this would be possible without the interest, vision, and participation of our alumni and club members. We encourage you to join us for an event, and to reach out to us if you have an interest in volunteering with our executive committee or should you have suggestions for further activities. Your interest in the Berkeley Club of France is a remarkable statement of your commitment and interest in Cal’s vision and mission, and we hope you will continue to support her no matter where your home in the world.
