About the site: Topical questions, campus experts, public opinion

Today, UC Berkeley is widely known as the preeminent public university in the United States, and as the home of the Free Speech Movement. The Berkeley Blog bridges these two.

Our authors include some 300 UC Berkeley faculty members, senior campus leaders and other scholars, who share their thoughts on topical national and global issues with which we all grapple. This blog serves as a virtual blackboard for ideas and expertise found on the Berkeley campus.

The thoughts expressed here are not that of the University, not official, not predictable, and not of one mind. In the spirit of the Free Speech Movement, the thoughts expressed here are those of the individual authors.

As we do not have the staff resources to moderate all blog comments consistent with the First Amendment, we are disallowing comments.
