Letters to the Editor


Want to see your opinions printed in the Daily Cal?

Every week, we are publishing a collection of short thoughts emailed to us from our readers regarding one of the most important issues of the week. This will appear in our Opinion Page under a Letters to the Editor section.

The purpose is to facilitate an exchange of ideas among our community and engage our readers with a variety of viewpoints on controversial issues.

Our Opinion Page runs on Mondays (Tuesdays after holidays) during the summer.

To contribute a submission for publication, email [email protected] with your thoughts on the week’s topic. Letters should be 50-150 words and may be edited for space and clarity.  In your email,  please include your affiliation with UC Berkeley or the city of Berkeley.  UC Berkeley students should include their major and year.

Below are the topics and the corresponding dates of publication. The deadline for submissions is noon the Sunday before publication.
