VSPA New Affiliate Orientation

VSPA New Affiliate Orientation

Welcome to UC Berkeley! The VSPA hosts a New Affiliate Orientation for Postdocs, Visiting Scholars, and Visiting Student Researchers with approved appointments on the first Thursday of each month (with holiday exceptions) from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. In this meeting, you will learn about campus resources, health and retirement benefits, connect with your peers and have an opportunity to ask questions.

Important Note: Postdoc attendance is mandatory per the union contract. Postdocs will meet confidentially with union representatives for 30 minutes at the end of the VSPA presentation at 10:30 am.

For questions, please contact Marci Burke at vspa_events@berkeley.edu.

We look forward to meeting you at an upcoming meeting!
