Board Member Transitions

Share this page

A volunteer-based Board of Directors provides governing counsel and oversight to International House, Berkeley. Chaired by UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert Birgeneau the Board includes thirty-four members and three residents of International House, all generous energetic volunteers who are key to ensuring quality in all of I-House's operations, programs and services to better fulfill our mission. In 2011 Board member and IH alumni Karen Grenberg McConnell and Richard Palmer, as well as longtime Vice-Chair of the Board, Peter J. Robertson completed their third three-year terms with the lasting thanks of the I-House worldwide community. Five new members received unanimous approval to join the Board in 2001.
