Message from the Chairman of the Board
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I would like to welcome Michael J. Smith as President of Berkeley College. Michael has served the Berkeley College organization with distinction for 19 years and brings a deep commitment to our mission of educating students and leading them into dynamic careers. He is a proven leader whose vision for the future of the College is rooted in Berkeley’s tradition of innovation and putting students first.
Michael is a successful businessman who headed his own company. He brings a wealth of experience in all aspects of business, finance, college operations, and management. Michael’s capabilities are magnified by a successful career in public service. His unique perspective as a public servant, along with the creativity and integrity Michael has exemplified throughout his career, will strengthen Berkeley’s ability to respond to the needs of the diverse constituencies the College serves.
Michael is committed to improving student outcomes and to bringing recognition to the accomplishments of our College and faculty. We are optimistic about the possibilities of the future as we enter this new chapter of our history at Berkeley College under Michael’s leadership. We wish Michael well as he begins his tenure as President.
