Welcome Message to Students

Welcome to the Fall 2021 Semester

Message from the President “Every Moment Counts”

michael-smith.jpgWelcome to the 2021-2022 academic year! Our campuses are open and our faculty and staff are ready to welcome all students. The Berkeley College community is here to support you every step of the way in your academic journey and career development.

Each year, I announce a theme that will guide the academic year. The 2021-2022 theme is “Every Moment Counts.” Nothing should stop you from achieving success in any way you choose to define it. This year, take advantage of every opportunity to develop yourself. This includes utilizing the many student resources and support services available to you.

COVID-19 is top of mind for all of us at Berkeley College. I want to assure you that we are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and have updated our policies and procedures to prioritize the health and safety of the Berkeley College community. All students, faculty, and staff are strongly encouraged to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as the best way to protect themselves and other members of the College community.

Masks or cloth face coverings must be worn while inside all campus buildings, as well as on all College shuttle transportation. Visit the COVID-19 webpage for more information, guidelines and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). Whether you are enrolled in on-site or online degree programs, our campuses are open to all students.

I look forward to meeting you during the semester at my Chat and Chew sessions, where you will have the opportunity to share feedback and ideas about your college experience. My personal goal is to make “Every Moment Count” with each of my students.

I will see you soon!

Michael J. Smith
