UC Berkeley

The HxA Campus Community at the University of California, Berkeley is determined to revive our Principle of Community and restore Berkeley's reputation as a beacon of free and open expression.

Given Berkeley's historic status as the home of the Free Speech Movement, the freedom to express dissenting views is fundamental to its DNA. Our university's mission reflects the understanding that excellence and viewpoint diversity are inextricably linked, and our Principles of Community prioritize the "freedom of expression and dialogue that elicits the full spectrum of views held by our varied communities."

"Speak your mind, even if your voice shakes." - Maggie Kuhn

Our Campus Community at UC Berkeley hold the following values:

1. Speak your mind, even if your voice shakes

2. Disagree without being disagreeable

3. Passion with compassion
