Associate Professor Erica Bree Rosenblum is the new faculty director of Berkeley Connect.

Associate Professor Erica Bree Rosenblum has been appointed faculty director of Berkeley Connect. A university-wide program, Berkeley Connect is a 1-credit mentorship and community-building course that students may take at any point in their undergraduate studies. The class arms students with professional development skills and creates a close-knit community, helping them better navigate Berkeley's large campus.

An evolutionary ecologist and global change biologist, Rosenblum’s research focuses on the processes that generate and threaten biological diversity. She has been involved in Berkeley Connect since 2013, first as a faculty mentor and then as faculty director of the program in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management.

“As Berkeley Connect continues to flourish across campus, now serving 14 fields of study, I look forward to supporting and leading this transformative program,” Rosenblum said of her new role as faculty director. “Berkeley Connect helps students navigate the Berkeley campus, develop important professional tools, and build a meaningful community, and I am excited to continue deepening our commitment to mentoring students and faculty across campus.”
