Officers, Committees, Organizers

The Berkeley Linguistics Department is successful because faculty, staff, and graduate and undergraduate students work together in support of our shared goals. Collaborating with staff, faculty serve on department committees and in other leadership positions. Graduate students take the lead in organizing fora and research groups, and represent student interests on committees.
