with Cal Queer Pals
UNITY Theme Program maintains a partnership with The Queer Cal Pals program of the Gender Equity Resource Center. This program is designed to connect incoming LGBTQ+ students with members of the larger UC Berkeley LGBTQ+ community through active programming. With the use of a buddy program rather than a mentorship, we strive to cultivate a mutualistic relationship between the Buddy (current UCB student) and Pal (incoming UCB student), where both share experiences and learn from one another. Mainly, Queer Cal Pals will help new students link with LGBTQ+ community (spaces, resources, events), as well as provide personal and social support during their transition to life at Cal.
