Native American Student Development

Indigenizing the Legacy of Berkeley


The Native American Student Development office (NASD) at Berkeley exists to serve and support the diverse and changing needs of Native students in their time at Cal. We strive to provide relevant, accessible and engaging programs and resources, promote intertribal and cross cultural approaches to community building with a social justice lens.

We work to partner with both off and on-campus entities to provide students with the best experience possible in their time here, while also supporting continuing growth and understanding of their individual identities as Native people. We also work to bring the histories, experiences and worldviews into a valued realm within the university as a whole.
