Industrial Engineering & Operations Research — Big Give
Help us continue our legacy and excellence!
Your donations have impact
Thanks to contributions from generous alums, we were recently able to completely renovate our only classroom, IEOR 1174 from "the dungeon" into a state-of-the-art auditorium. Thanks for making a difference!
This year, our goal is to continue to improve our space and foster connections with alumni.
Continue to improve our space
With your help this year, we plan to install video recording capabilities into the new auditorium. This means that we will be able to record seminars, tech talks, alumni events, and courses at the click of a button. This will allow us to share more content to YouTube that will be accessible to alums!
We also plan to help improve space for graduate students, by working adding comfortable furniture and high-powered graphic computer workstations to save time for students by running their algorithms more quickly and conveniently!
Improve culture and foster connections with alumni
We have been working hard to improve culture in the department, to help students and alumni get more connected with the department and help to guide it into the future.
One initiative is the new IEOR Communications Council, a group of IEOR undergraduates that help with newsletters, social media, events, and outreach (to help more people know about IEOR).

This, along with the Institute of Industrial & Systems Engineers (IISE) and Alpha Pi Mu (APM) has helped the department be more engaged in student activities.
Soon, we will announce a special alumni/student social event to help students and alums get connected. Additionally, students on the Council piloted a alumni/student mentor/mentee program this winter.
Initiatives that the Council is leading that you can participate in right now include, signing up for the IEOR Newsletter, the new IEOR jobs newsletter, and submitting your company's jobs to the newsletter to get more alumni working together.
Please donate today to help us continue the momentum! With your help, we know we can help students, faculty, staff, and alumni have more "Berkeley moments" to share in the future. Thank you!
