Student Concerns and Grievances

The EECS Department is committed to building a broadly diverse community and strives to create a welcoming and respectful learning environment for students. Your feedback and comments will help us work towards this goal.

EECS Student Incident Reporting Form

Students are encouraged to use the EECS Student Incident Reporting Form to submit incident reports or suggestions for improving the climate in the EECS Department. Submissions may be anonymous, or you may choose to provide contact information.  This form is the result of a recommendation by the EECS Anti-Racism Committee and is intended to surface issues that may adversely affect the climate within the Department, such as those related to diversity, equity and harassment.

You may also send mail to eecs-climate-report@eecs.berkeley.edu

EECS General Student Grievances
