Student Advisory Council on Undergraduate Education

Advising campus leadership on the student experience

The Student Advisory Council on Undergraduate Education (SACUE) shapes the student experience at UC Berkeley by providing critical feedback to the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and campus leaders managing initiatives and programs.


Convened by the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, SACUE meets throughout the academic year to engage with campus decision-makers on issues that affect all undergraduates. By participating in SACUE, students have the opportunity to work closely with key stakeholders, build networks, and provide feedback on critical campus projects. For more information or questions about SACUE, email sacue@berkeley.edu(link sends e-mail).

Welcome from Vice Provost O'Reilly

Hello and welcome to the 2022-23 academic year at UC Berkeley. If you are interested in sharing your experience as an undergraduate at UC Berkeley, I encourage you to join the Student Advisory Council on Undergraduate Education (SACUE). SACUE serves as an advisory committee and this body is very important to me. It is vital that students’ voices are taken into consideration in my decision-making process and I often rely on SACUE to provide me with feedback about topics both large and small. I also enjoy getting to know all SACUE members and learning about your experiences and how I as your vice provost can improve the overall student experience at UC Berkeley. As a professor in Engineering and having sat on numerous academic committees, I am very aware of many of the challenges and opportunities available to our undergraduates, and my goal is to build community and keep an open line of communication with SACUE members. If you are interested in joining SACUE or would like to recommend a student for SACUE, please submit a nomination by August 30, 2022.

Welcome from the Chair

Hello fellow Berkeley Bears! My name is Nicholas Hall, I am a junior majoring in economics and minoring in public policy. I joined the Student Advisory Council on Undergraduate Education (SACUE) my freshman year and it has been one of my most engaging and rewarding experiences during my time at Cal so far. This fall, I have the honor and pleasure of being your Chair.

SACUE is a great opportunity to contribute to the undergraduate community beyond the classroom. Extracurricular activities are, in my opinion, crucial for us as students to achieve growth and success at Cal. This is why myself and so many others have chosen to get involved with SACUE and engage with campus projects and initiatives. We at SACUE are comprised of a diverse community of students from all majors and interests, each and every one of us brings a unique perspective that can contribute to the betterment of our Cal undergraduate experience, as well as the university as a whole.

We are the pilots and guides for campus initiatives, providing opportunities and platforms to engage with senior campus leaders. Some of my personal favorite projects have been Major Maps, Cal Central improvement and L&S Advising. There are many other projects beyond what I have just listed, and I invite you to join us and give your unique perspectives and insights.

With the COVID-19 pandemic (hopefully) nearing its end, we need to hear your student voice more than ever. Our feedback will help inform campus leaders with ideas and innovations that will contribute immensely to when these projects are eventually initiated for the public. That's right, our contributions will create real tangible impacts on initiatives that will be used by the entire Cal community. Everyone is better served with our voices heard!

We hope to see you around this year! Go Bears!

Kind Regards,
Nicholas Hall
