In November 2013, one of the emails he sent his students on the importance of undergraduate education gained worldwide attention.

The second advisor, Robert Reich, is Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley and Senior Fellow at the Blum Center for Developing Economies. He previously served as Secretary of Labor in the Clinton administration and was named by Time Magazine as one of the ten most effective cabinet secretaries of the twentieth century. He has written thirteen books, including the best-sellers "Aftershock," "The Work of Nations," and "Beyond Outrage." He is also a founding editor of the American Prospect magazine and chairman of Common Cause. He headlines in the critically-acclaimed film "Inequality for All."

“While the Berkeley Forum is a completely student-run organization, our advisory board plays an important role in assisting us. We are extremely excited with the addition of these two distinguished and highly qualified professors and look forward to working with them in the future,” said Pierre Bourbonnais, the president of the Berkeley Forum.

The Berkeley Forum is a non-partisan, student-run organization at the University of California, Berkeley. Founded in 2012, the Forum organizes panels, debates, and talks by leading experts from a wide variety of fields.
