Dear I-House Community, 

Giving Tuesday is one of the biggest giving days of the year. Will you give today to I-House to support the development of empathetic leaders?

In a world that seems increasingly divided, cultural humility and empathy have emerged as fundamental attributes we urgently need to instill in our future leaders. Our world needs leaders who can work together to find solutions to the pressing, collective challenges we face across the globe today.

There's a special energy around I-House in recent weeks. The Great Hall and Edmonds' Cafe have been packed with colorful team jerseys and intense, but friendly competition as residents watched the World Cup matches. Spirited chanting, clapping, and hoots and hollers are still echoing through the hallways. In the library, a different, quiet fellowship has dominated, with students sitting side-by-side at the long tables writing papers, preparing presentations, and studying for final exams. In the newly remodeled Sproul Kitchen and Gamble Lounge, which opened last week, residents have been cooking and sharing traditional foods of their home countries with new friends. The excitement has been palpable.  And all around the House, group hugs and tearful goodbyes are taking place as some of our residents, finished with their studies at UC Berkeley, depart I-House, head back home, and become a part of the I-House global community.  For these and many other reasons, I ask you to make a gift to I-House.
