All students belong to the Student Association and are invited to participate in its activities. The Association has several important functions, all of which aim to facilitate students’ progress in the Institute. Student meetings provide one of the arenas in which work may be presented to fulfill course requirements. The meetings also serve as a support group for any Institute related concerns or problems. In addition students have access to a listserve for online discussions and support. Communication between the Student Association and the deans and faculty about matters of concern takes place at student/faculty meetings held during each convocation. The Student Association elects a student representative to be liaison with the Board of Trustees.
Student services are coordinated through The Sanville Institute’s administrative office at 2198 Sixth Street in Berkeley, California. To reach the administrative office call toll 510-848-8420. The student handbook is sent to you when tuition is received, and the roster with contact information for the students, faculty and alumni is updated and made available each quarter. Student access to the library database is available here on the Institute website.
