OBMO is committed to delivering outreach programs that enable the University to extend its rich educational resources and knowledge base for the direct benefit of both the internal campus community and the external public community.
Partnership and Collaboration
Mutually beneficial partnerships and collaborations are central to enabling OMBO to identify outreach opportunities. The department works in conjunction with faculty, staff, students, and business units to enrich UC Berkeley’s partnerships with the community, and to embed the concept of outreach and engagement into the campus culture.
The collaboration process is manifested through Connecting@Cal, a communications forum through which OMBO promotes and educates the campus community on its latest promotional events and outreach activities.
Real World Issues
Outreach programs often address real-world problems and are very much in line with current cultural, environmental and economic issues. OMBO’s outreach efforts are focused on cause-related activities and events, which include social and environmental initiatives and participation in public service events.
