UC Berkeley College of Natural Resources
The College of Natural Resources, a college of the University of California, Berkeley, is the oldest college in the UC system and home to several internationally top-ranked programs. CNR is considered to be one of the most prestigious schools in Agricultural Economics in the world, ranking #1 according to the Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, #1 by the Chronicle of Higher Education, #1 by Perry for its Ph. D. programs and in International Trade, #1 by the National Research Council in Agricultural & Resource Economics, #1 by U. S. News in Environmental/Environmental Health. In environmental disciplines, QS World Rankings recognizes the University of California, Berkeley, as the world's leading university in Environmental Studies with 100 points in Academic Reputation. U. S. News ranks it as the best global university for environment and ecology. A study of AJAE authors and their university affiliations found it to have the highest number of pages per research faculty member. Established in 1868 as the College of Agriculture under the federal Morrill Land-Grant Acts, CNR is the first state-run Agricultural Experiment Station.
The college is home to four academic departments: Resource Economics. Faculty include 40 Fulbright Fellows, 29 American Association for the Advancement of Science Fellows, 16 National Academy of Sciences members, 12 Guggenheim Fellows, 8 American Academy of Arts and Sciences members, 7 MacArthur Fellows, 4 Nobel Laureates, 2 Wolf Prize winners, 2 World Food Prize winners; the Dean of the College is Prof. David Ackerly. Plans for the creation of this public university were first developed at the 1849 Constitutional Convention, but when the State of California was established in 1850, it lacked the funds necessary to create such a school. Missionaries sent west by the Home Mission Society of New York, created the College of California and transferred its ownership to the State in 1855. By 1862, the State had secured the land necessary to establish a college as a result of the Morrill Act; this college was known as the Agricultural Mining and Mechanical Arts College, opened formally in 1866. On March 23, 1868, Governor H.
H. Haight combined the resources of this college with the College of California to create the first University of California; the Board of Regents began admitting women to the University of California in 1871, the first woman to graduate was Rosa L. Scrivner, with a PhB in Agriculture; the College of Natural Resources is located on the northwest end of the UC Berkeley campus, comprises six main buildings. These include the historic group of Wellman and Giannini halls that composed the original college; this trio, known as the Agriculture Complex, is the most unified grouping of buildings on campus. They are on the National Register of Historic Places, are visually unified by a Mediterranean landscape of olive and stone pine trees; the first hall, Wellman, is a Classical Revival building designed in 1912 by John Galen Howard and named after Harry R. Wellman, a professor of Agricultural Economics, acting president of the University. Hilgard was constructed six years by the same architect, named after Eugene W. Hilgard, professor of Agricultural Chemistry and father of modern soil science.
Its neo-classical design is inscribed with the phrase "To Rescue for Human Society the Native Values of Rural Life."Giannini Hall was designed by Howard's co-worker, William Charles Hays, through an endowment from the Bancitaly Corporation in memory of their founder, Amadeo Giannini. Agricultural and Resource Economics researches global food production and health, development economics, climate change, environmental economics, applied econometrics, policy evaluation, energy economics, natural resource economics, international trade.

Danah boyd is a technology and social media scholar. She is a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research, the founder and president of Data & Society Research Institute, a Visiting Professor at New York University. Boyd grew up in Lancaster and Altoona, attended Manheim Township High School from 1992–1996. According to her website, she was born Danah Michele Mattas. Once she reached college, she chose to take her maternal grandfather's name, Boyd, as her own last name, she decided to spell her name in lowercase so as "to reflect my mother's original balancing and to satisfy my own political irritation at the importance of capitalization." After her parents' divorce, in 1982, she moved to York, with her mother and her brother. Her mother married again during the family moved to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, she used online discussions forums to escape from high school. She called Lancaster a "conservative" city. Having had online discussions on the topic, she began to identify as queer. A few years her brother taught her how to use IRC and Usenet.
Though she thought computers were "lame" at the time, the possibilities for connecting with others intrigued her. She became an avid participant on Usenet and IRC in her junior year in high school, spending a lot of time browsing, creating content, conversing with strangers. Though active in many extra-curricular activities and excelling academically, boyd had a difficult time in high school, she assigns "her survival to her mother, the Internet, a classmate whose misogynistic comments inspired her to excel."Her initial ambition was to become an astronaut but after an injury, she became more interested in the Internet. Boyd studied computer science at Brown University, where she worked with Andries van Dam and wrote an undergraduate thesis about how "3-D computer systems used cues that were inherently sexist." She pursued her master's degree in sociable media with Judith Donath at the MIT Media Lab. She worked for the New York-based activist organization V-Day, first as a volunteer and as paid staff.
She moved to San Francisco, where she met the individuals involved in creating the new Friendster service. She documented what she was observing via her blog, this grew into a career. In 2008, boyd earned a Ph. D. at the UC Berkeley School of Information, advised by Peter Lyman and Mizuko Ito. Her dissertation, Taken Out of Context: American Teen Sociality in Networked Publics, focused on the use of large social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace by U. S. teenagers, was blogged on Boing Boing. During the 2006–07 academic year, boyd was a fellow at the Annenberg Center for Communication at the University of Southern California, she was a long-time fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, where she co-directed the Internet Safety Technical Task Force, served on the Youth and Media Policy Working Group. While in graduate school, she was involved with a three-year ethnographic project funded by the MacArthur Foundation and led by Mimi Ito, her publications included an article in the MacArthur Foundation Series on Digital Learning, Identity Volume called "Why Youth Social Network Sites: The Role of Networked Publics in Teenage Social Life."
The article focuses on social networks' implications for youth identity. The project culminated with a co-authored book "Hanging Out, Messing Around, Geeking Out: Kids Living and Learning with New Media."She published untraditional research on youth using Facebook and MySpace in 2007. She demonstrated that most young users of Facebook were white and middle-to-upper class, while MySpace users tended to be lower-class black teenagers, her work is translated and relayed to major media. In addition to blogging on her own site, she addresses issues of youth and technology use on the DMLcentral blog. boyd has written academic papers and op-ed pieces on online culture. Her career as a fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center started in 2007. In January 2009, boyd joined Microsoft Research New England, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, as a Social Media Researcher. In 2013, boyd founded Data & Society Research Institute to address the social, ethical and policy issues that are emerging from data-centric technological development.
She was interviewed in the 2015 web documentary about internet privacy. Boyd is president of Data & Society, a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research and a Visiting Professor at New York University, she serves on the board of directors of Crisis Text Line, as a Trustee of the National Museum of the American Indian, on the board of the Social Science Research Council, on the advisory board of the Electronic Privacy Information Center. Boyd is focused on research questions related to "big data" and AI, bias and manipulation of data, how technology shapes inequality. In 2008, boyd published her PhD dissertation titled Taken Out of Context: American Teen Sociality in Networked Publics at University of California, Berkeley.

A public university is a university, publicly owned or receives significant public funds through a national or subnational government, as opposed to a private university. Whether a national university is considered public varies from one country to another depending on the specific education landscape. In Egypt, Al-Azhar University was founded in 970 AD as a madrassa, making it one of the oldest institutions of higher education in the world, formally becoming a university in 1961, it was followed by a lot of universities opened as public universities in the 20th century such as Cairo University, Alexandria University, Assiut University, Ain Shams University, Helwan University, Beni-Suef University, Benha University, Zagazig University, Suez Canal University, where tuition fees are subsidized by the government. In Kenya, the Ministry of Education controls all of the public universities. Students are enrolled after completing the 8-4-4 system of education and attaining a mark of C+ or above. Students who meet the criteria determined annually by the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service receive government sponsorship, as part of their university or college fee is catered for by the government.
They are eligible for a low interest loan from the Higher Education Loan Board. They are expected to pay back the loan after completing higher education. In Nigeria public universities can be established by both the federal government and by state governments. Examples include the University of Lagos, Obafemi Awolowo University, University of Ibadan, University of Benin, University of Nigeria, Ahmadu Bello University, Abia State University, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Gombe State University, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Federal University of Technology Yola, University of Maiduguri, Usmanu Danfodiyo University, University of Jos, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, University of Ilorin, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University South Africa has 23 public tertiary educational institutions, either categorised as a traditional university or a comprehensive university. Prominent public South African universities include the University of Johannesburg, University of Cape Town, Nelson Mandela University, North-west University, University of KwaZulu-Natal, University of Pretoria, University of Stellenbosch, University of Witwatersrand, Rhodes University and the University of South Africa.
In Tunisia, the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research controls all of the public universities. For some universities, the ministry of higher education coordinates with other ministries like: the Ministry of Public health or the Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies. Admission in a public university in Tunisia is assured after succeeding in the Tunisian Baccalaureate: Students are classified according to a Formula score based on their results in the Baccalaureate; the students make a wishlist with the universities they want to attend on a state website dedicated for orientation. Thus, the high-ranking-students get priority to choose. Examples of Tunisian public universities: Carthage University, Carthage Ez-Zitouna University, Tunis Manouba University, Manouba Tunis El Manar University, Tunis Tunis University, Tunis Université Tunis Carthage University of Gabès, Gabès University of Gafsa, Gafsa University of Jendouba, Jendouba University of Kairouan, Kairouan University of Monastir, Monastir University of Sfax, Sfax University of Sousse, Sousse There are 40 public universities in Bangladesh.
The universities do not deal directly with the government, but with the University Grants Commission, which in turn deals with the government. Many private universities are established under the Private University Act of 1992. All universities in Brunei are public universities; these are major universities in Brunei: University of Brunei Darussalam Brunei Technological University Sultan Sharif Ali Islamic University In mainland China, nearly all universities and research institutions are public and all important and significant centers for higher education in the country are publicly administered. The public universities are run by the provincial governments; some public universities are national. Private undergraduate colleges do exist, which are vocational colleges sponsored by private enterprises; the majority of such universities are not entitled to award bachelor's degrees. Public universities enjoy higher reputation domestically. Eight institutions are funded by the University Grants Committee.
The Academy for Performing Arts receives funding from the government. The Open University of Hong Kong is a public university, but it is self-financed; the Shue Yan University is the only private institution with the status of a university, but it receives some financial support from the government since it was granted university status. In India, most universities and nearly all research institutions are public. There are some private undergraduate colleges engineering schools, but a majority of these are affiliated to public universities; some of these private schools are partially aided by the national or state governments. India has an "open" public university, the Indira Gandhi National Open University, which offers distance education, in terms of the number of enrolled students is now the largest university in the world with over 4 million students. There are private educational institutes in Indonesia; the government (Ministry of Re
Oski the Bear
Oski or Oski the Bear is the official mascot of the University of California, Berkeley. Oski’s name and character were developed by William “Rocky” Rockwell, the first student to play the role, former Daily Cal editor Warrington Colescott. Oski made his debut during the September 27, 1941 football season-opener against St. Mary's College and has been the university’s official mascot since. Up until 1941, live bears were used as mascots. After 1946, the bear's activities have been overseen by the Oski Committee, which appoints a new Oski whenever a replacement is required. Oski's identity is protected by the Committee and wearers of the suit do not disclose their having worn the suit. There may be multiple members of the Committee. Oski is mentioned by name in several California fight songs. In the songs, the name "Oski" is used interchangeably with the title "Golden Bear". Several of the songs give an impression of Oski being a powerful guardian-being dwelling in the heavens, as well as sallying forth from a lair on Earth.
Oski is identified as the astronomical constellation Ursa Major. Although Oski has his benign side, he is more presented as growling, rumbling, grumbling and shaking the ground, he is described as mighty. It is said of Oski that he "wears a Paderewski hair". Oski is described as "Our totem", Cal's teams are described as sons of the Golden Bear. In one song, Oski is referred to as "He" with a capital "H". One song appears to attribute to Oski the ability to fly through the air; these characteristics are seen in the following lyrics of Cal fight songs: Fight for California -- Our sturdy Golden Bear Is watching from the skies. Big "C" -- Golden Bear is watching. Like our friend Mister Jonah, Stanford's team will be found, In the tummy of the Golden Bear. Cal Band March -- And when the game's done, California's Golden Bear has carried the day. California, We're For You -- All our rival's hopes are doomed to die, When our Golden Bear looks down on high. Brawn and brain are all in vain Unless our spirit's there In ev'ry son of the Golden Bear....
Let the echoes ring our Oski Golden Bear -- Oh, have you seen the heavens blue, heavens blue, When just sev'n stars are shining through, shining through Right overhead a jovial crew? They're joining hands to make the Bear... And oh, that Bear's a glorious sight, glorious sight, A-circling'round the pole all night, pole all night, he has a patient air, patient air, He wears a Paderewski hair,'rewski hair, He's the center rush of the heavens I swear, Our silent, sturdy Golden Bear.... A Californian through and through, Our totem, He, the Golden Bear. Make Way for the Bear -- Rumbling, loud upon the air, Sounds the growling of the mighty Bear. Californians gather'round his Lair, And march to Victory.... Marching along for California We stride beside the fighting Bear. California Marching Song -- Californians fight with the sturdy might of the growling Golden Bear. Our Oski shakes the ground As vict ` ry fills the air. Oski.com includes many photos of Oski.

UC Berkeley College of Environmental Design
The College of Environmental Design known as the Berkeley CED, or CED, is one of 14 schools and colleges at the University of California, Berkeley. The school is located in Wurster Hall on the southeast corner of the main UC Berkeley campus, it is composed of three departments: Architecture City and Regional Planning Landscape Architecture and Environmental PlanningCED is ranked as one of the most prestigious design schools in the U. S. and the world. The Graduate Program in Architecture is ranked No. 4 in the world through QS World University Rankings subject rankings. The Architecture program has been recognized as the top public program by the journal'DesignIntelligence' and is ranked No. 6 in the United States. The Urban Planning program is ranked No. 2 by Planetizen. In 1894, Bernard Maybeck was appointed instructor in drawing at the Civil Engineering College of the University of California. A school of architecture did not yet exist; the School of Architecture at Berkeley was developed by John Galen Howard in 1903 followed by the School of Landscape Architecture, established by John Gregg, which began instruction in 1913 and City Planning in 1948.
In order to encourage an atmosphere of interdisciplinary study, the three schools, with the Department of Decorative Arts, were brought under one roof and the College of Environmental Design was founded in 1959 by, William Wurster, T. J Kent, Catherine Bauer, Vernon DeMars; the school was located in North Gate Hall. Wurster Hall, the building which houses the college opened in 1964 and was designed by Joseph Esherick, Vernon DeMars, Donald Olsen, members of the CED faculty. One of the CED's early innovations during the 1960s was the development of the "four-plus-two" course of study for architecture students, meaning a four-year non-professional Bachelor of Arts in Architecture degree followed by a two-year professional Master of Architecture degree; the 4+2 program was meant to address the shortfalls of the traditional 5-year professional Bachelor of Architecture program, which many architecture educators felt was too rushed and neglected the undergraduate's intellectual development in favor of a strong emphasis on practical design knowledge.
The 4+2 program allowed one to receive a broader education including exposure to the liberal arts as an undergraduate and thus a deeper and more thorough education in architectural design as a graduate student. CED was an early proponent of design for disability and green architecture, is home to the Center for the Built Environment. In 2009-2010, the College of Environmental Design marked its 50th anniversary with a year-long series of events that paid tribute to CED's history and legacy, engaged the college community in a lively discussion about its future. In March 2015, the college unveiled a 9' high 3D printed sculpture, entitled "Bloom", composed of an iron oxide-free Portland cement powder; this was the first printed structure of its type.
