UC Berkeley is mourning the loss of Walter Robinson, who headed up the campus’s undergraduate recruitment and enrollment efforts from 2005 to 2011. He passed away at his home in Vallejo on June 9 at age 66.
“Walter was a titan of higher education access and equity and left an indelible impact on UC Berkeley,” said Fabrizio Mejia, Berkeley’s assistant vice chancellor for student equity and success. “In his personal time, before and after he retired, he mentored and supported many staff and alums who are now in leadership positions across the country. HIs wisdom, perspective, humor and inspiration will be deeply missed.”
