Country Contacts

If you need a contact in another country, the alumni listed below have volunteered to receive your inquiries. Many thanks to all who have volunteered to serve as Country Contacts and to extend the I-House spirit of welcome!

To volunteer to be a Country Contact or to update your listing with a short message, email ihalumni@berkeley.edu. The primary responsibility of Country Contacts is to receive inquiries from visiting alumni. Anything beyond that is up to you. Some have organized informal gatherings in their area and others have sent newspaper clippings (or web links) with news of I-House alumni in their countries.
