Black Students in Public Policy (BiPP)


The mission of Blacks in Public Policy (BiPP) is to encourage the discussion of public policy issues as they relate to the Black community. We engage with undergraduate students at UC Berkeley through mentorship programs, host film screenings and discussions, and volunteer in the local community. BiPP also provides a social network for Black students at GSPP through social gatherings and team building activities.

BiPP welcomes all GSPP students.
