Community Involvement

SADI programming

We offer a wide range of campus-wide programming to complement the academic experience as we believe in a comprehensive education model that goes beyond the learning and interactions that take place strictly in the classrooms. Embracing the Diversity and Inclusion strategy for the Valencia campus, we offer programs (ie: guest lectures, dialogues, campaigns, etc.) that address essential topics such as racial justice, gender equality, mental health, accessibility, and climate change in the context of the creative industries.

Student Leadership Opportunities

Our community is cocreated every academic year by the student body that we welcome to our campus and therefore we work closely with student leaders to create a vibrant community life where every single student can feel included, engaged and supported. Student leaders help us create a sense of belonging in our campus. 

Student Advisory Board

The Student Advisory Board represents and voices the needs and interests of Berklee’s Valencia campus students’ to the campus leadership teams, with the goal of ensuring a healthy dialogue between the student body and the institution, and fostering an environment based on diversity, equity, inclusion, and respect within our community both on and off campus.

The board, formed by two students from every academic program, provides regular feedback about the student experience to campus officials. It is an essential mechanism in the Berklee Valencia community to work together and create a community where students strive to reach their full potential and flourish. 

Student Clubs

Student clubs enrich the student experience, create a diverse community, encourage involvement, and provide opportunities for students to build valuable skills. Open to students from all academic programs, these clubs organize programs, events, and meetings across campus throughout each semester.

Here's a sampling of the clubs created by and available to Berklee Valencia students. Student interests are always changing, and so is our list of clubs so be mindful of possible changes to this section. 

Black Student Union - Valencia Chapter

She Knows Tech - Valencia Chapter

Sexuality and Gender Alliance Association

Student clubs meet periodically over the semester, developing educational and engaging content around their topic of interest and contributing to a sense of community within our student body. Information about how to start or join a student club and the process and policies that must be followed is given at the start of every semester. 

Day Trips and Granada (undergraduate students)

We offer a number of day trips per semester for undergraduate students so they can enjoy everything that Valencia and its surroundings have to offer. 

These cultural travels are life-changing experiences, enriching and broadening the student's perspective by immersing in the local culture. Students have the opportunity to try the local cuisine, explore the natural surroundings, learn the language, and discover hidden gems of the local culture such as: La Albufera Natural Park, Catamarans in the Mediterranean Sea, Saint Joseph Caves, Sagunto Roman Amphitheater and Castle, etc. Students return home with a newfound appreciation for the richness and diversity of our world!

Granada Trip

There is the opportunity for students to participate in a four-day trip to Granada. (See a photo slideshow of a recent trip on the right.) This eastern Andalusia city lies at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains, between the rivers Darro and Genil. The impressive Andalusian legacy comes together with architectural jewels from the Renaissance and the most modern 21st-century facilities.

Granada has an unmistakably Moorish flavor, as it was the last city to be reconquered by the Catholic Monarchs in 1492. Its gastronomy, craftwork, and urban landscape are shaped by its glorious historical past. Fountains, viewpoints, and “cármenes" (houses surrounded by gardens, typical of this city) create delightful and unforgettable neighborhoods. One of its historic districts, Albaicín, is a World Heritage Site, together with the Alhambra and Generalife, all of which students visit during this trip. 

It was also an important cultural center for many centuries, under both Islamic and Christian rulers, and still boasts an admirable array of culture and leisure activities.
