Message from the President: Creating a Safe Campus Environment

Dear Berklee community,

Our Berklee campuses encompass a large and diverse group of students, faculty, and staff united by our love of music and our passion for learning. The empathy required for music-making, and the openness and inquisitiveness essential to creativity, are at the heart of everyone’s daily life at Berklee.  Unfortunately, sexual assault is a disturbing reality on many college campuses, including ours—and it goes against everything we stand for.

Student Activities Center Hours During Break

Congratulations to those in the 12-Week Summer Program for completing another semester!

Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Regular hours will resume on Monday, September 8.

As always, please feel free to contact us at (617) 747-2560 or at studentactivities@berklee.edu
