Departmental Overview

New Student Services (NSS) empowers undergraduate students to succeed and facilitates their transition to UC Berkeley. This process is known as the Golden Bear Experience, which consists of two parts: Before Students Arrive (advising and prep, online) and After Students Arrive (Move-In, Golden Bear Orientation, and Getting Your Bearings, on campus).

The overarching goals of the Golden Bear Experience are to:
*Welcome new students into UC Berkeley's scholarly community and lay the foundation for fostering their intellectual identity
*Create opportunities for participants to gain an understanding of academic requirements
*Create opportunities for participants to connect with university and college resources, services, and support structures
*Create opportunities for participants to engage with campus traditions and the range of UC Berkeley's unique cultural communities
*Create opportunities for participants to engage with their peers and the broader campus community
*Set the path for a lifelong relationship with the campus

New Student Services is a department that reports to the Associate Vice Chancellor and Dean of Students Office within the Division of Student Affairs.

The Division of Student Affairs aims to advance the learning and personal growth of students by providing leadership, services, and opportunities that enable students to succeed in and contribute to a diverse and global society. The Office of the Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Dean of Students, its Centers, and staff create environments to educate, support, and challenge students to seek and follow their purpose, build resiliency, transform themselves, and engage communities.

The Program Coordinator serves as a key individual in the development of student leaders by researching and executing training and the supervisory structure for 750 Orientation Leaders and 60 Orientation Mentors. The Program Coordinator will also oversee a component of new student transition outside of Golden Bear Orientation. Student transition begins as soon as they accept their office of admission and extends into the first semester.
