ASUC SUPERB is a student run, non-profit branch funded by the ASUC, responsible for providing entertainment for the campus and the community through their ten departments: General Management, Concerts, Games, Films, Sneak Previews, Comedy, Marketing, Photography, Web and Art & Design. Their 80-person production team is composed entirely of undergraduate students who are passionate about bringing great entertainment to the UC Berkeley campus and community.
The DeCal Board provides student support, outreach, and publicity. We are not responsible for reviewing, approving, or supervising Special Studies courses. The departments and the Academic Senate handle all academic and administrative aspects of DeCal courses. They manage course listings, help facilitators get funding from the ASUC, get publicity, make copies for their course, or simply help them fill out the paperwork, put on pedagogical workshops, connect people to UC FTR resources, and foster an academic dialogue on education.
ASUC Helios Solar Program
The ASUC Helios program works to:
- Bring renewable energy to students to decrease the cost of living: the cost of living in Berkeley is one of the highest in the country. Providing some savings makes living in Berkeley a little more affordable.
- Decrease fossil fuel dependence & increase student energy independence: reducing student energy consumption would have a large impact as the City of Berkeley works towards 50% solar energy by 2030 while reducing emissions.
- Establish a rolling fund for the expansion of renewables to more student: a fraction of the cost savings goes back to Helios while the majority says with the house. The rolling fund will go towards funding more student solar installations.
