Who are we?

The Bangali Student Association at Berkeley's primary goal is to provide a space for those affiliated with or interested in the Bengali culture to meet other members of the community and celebrate our language, customs and history. BSA stands on the principles of diversity and inclusiveness for all community members, Bengali students of all heritages, backgrounds, and religious affiliations. Aside from fostering a social and educational community for Bengali students, we strive to promote awareness and appreciation of Bengali culture, heritage and history in the larger UC Berkeley community through the celebration of various social and cultural activities. We also seek to improve the quality of life of the Bengali people through contributions to nonprofit organizations and relief efforts that support education, health, climate resilience and economic development in Bangladesh and West Bengal.
