I Am Because We Are…
A Story Worth Sharing
“Africans have a thing called Ubuntu. It is about the essence of being human… It embraces hospitality, caring about others, being willing to go the extra mile for the sake of another. We believe that a person is a person through other persons, that my humanity is caught up, bound up, inextricably, with yours.”
- Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Dear Peralta Community,
I’m writing to help us all in our planning for summer and fall 2021 semesters.
We continue to work closely with local public health officials and the State Chancellor's Office while we serve the community and meet our mission. Berkeley City College, College of Alameda, Laney College and Merritt College will continue to offer the majority of the courses and services as online or hybrid this summer and fall semester.
