"One of the things that I will remember fondly about my association with Asha for Education is the opportunity to teach the ’Images of India’ DeCal. I love how it combines a lot of things that I’m passionate about. It reminds me of how much I enjoy teaching, learning and exchanging ideas. It often pushes me to look at India from different lenses. I find that I discover something new every week! And it also makes me grateful to have the chance to fulfil my choti si asha - to make a difference in whatever way I can." - Neha Nair, Decal Facilitator #calbiggive#ashameanshope

I 💖 CAL bc it gave me so much more than a first class education - it gave me Asha for Education - a tremendous opportunity to serve the underprivileged in India seeking education, and a better life! The first picture is a note from Little Stars School, a project that I steward, the latter our first general meeting of the academic year where we brought in a new project, Sakhi for Girls Education. #ashameanshope#calbiggive Support Asha for Education, Berkeley via: https://give.berkeley.edu/egiving/index.cfm?fund=FU1435000 ! 🙌🏽🙏🏽

#staffspotlight: Susan Hagstrom is the Director of the Office of Undergraduate Advising at CED. She is supporting the Diversity Fund for Student Support during #cedbiggive -- happening now until 9 PM tonight.

Thank you in advance for helping remove barriers to an environment in which all students can thrive." Give to the Diversity Fund until 9 pm tonight! LINK IN BIO!!! #calbiggive
"I will be a hummingbird." SERC was founded on the idea of the hummingbird story: we may be small, but we are mighty. We do the best we can with what we have, and we will never stop fighting the good fight. This is us seizing the moment. But we can't do it without your support. All the programs and events we have showcased leading up to Big Give cannot happen without the support of our generous donors and alumni. Please consider donating now to SERC: http://bit.ly/2iehs6Z . With your gifts, we’re able to make SERC work and continue to move forward, grow, and bloom. Sharon Daraphonhdeth (SERC Director) Q: Why is it important to give back to SERC? A: "As the SERC Director, I have the privilege of seeing firsthand the benefits of having an environmental resource center for students. I’ve been able to witness the moments of growth, the success of campaigns, the projects coming to fruition, the grants being awarded, the programs being developed, and the love for the community and the environment. And I couldn’t imagine UC Berkeley without this space. The programs, services, educational and leadership opportunities SERC provides on environmental leadership and activism for students, fills a much needed gap on campus and for the community at large. Donating to SERC directly supports student leadership, student engagement, and provides students resources and opportunities to develop the skills, tools, and education they need to progress environmental sustainability and environmental justice." From the bottom of our hearts, SERC thanks you for your support! Has SERC positively impacted your life?

SERC has really cool people. Period. Send Tweet (or post). 🐻💚 While we come from so many diverse backgrounds, the thing that unites us all is our passion to do our part in saving the environment. SERC is not SERC without all the incredible people, past, present, and future, that make it up. Once a SERC member, always a SERC member! Scott Silva (Zero Waste Research Center Lead Associate) Q: How has SERC impacted your life? A: "SERC employs 25+ student staff every year, and it is amazing to meet so many different and diverse communities through working with SERC student employees. I have met students that have challenged me to rethink the way I interact with the world, encouraged me to live by the work I do, and supported me in succeeding to work together to make this campus more sustainable. I truly have made some of my best friends in SERC, and I have gained a lot of important perspective in working closely with such amazing people." Want to continue to support SERC and all its work?

As much as the people support SERC, SERC also supports its people! SERC is all about growth - after all, our logo is a tree. And how do trees grow best? With lots of water, sunshine (get that Vitamin D yo!), and people who nurture and love on it to its full potential! And Courtney McGuire, our wonderful Vermicomposting Supervisor, agrees! Courtney McGuire (Vermicomposting Supervisor) Q: How has SERC supported you academically, professionally, and/or personally? A: "SERC has supported me in becoming more confident as a leader and as a member of the Berkeley community. Prior to joining SERC I felt confused about how I ended up at Berkeley and what I wanted from it, and although I still feel this way from time to time, I now feel more of a belonging to the campus community because of SERC. I no longer feel intimidated by the prospect of leading a project, team or even just a meeting because of the numerous opportunities my role in SERC has given me to lead. I’m so grateful for the sense of place SERC has given me and I don’t know if I could’ve received it from anywhere else." SERC would not be able to support its programs and staff without the support of generous donors and alumni.
