CHILE: Bachelet Energizes Berkeley


Graduate student Taylor Boas reports on Chilean President Michelle Bachelet’s June visit to Berkeley.

“California and Chile are linked by a deep bond and a sense of community, and for that reason, I have looked forward to coming here to share the good news of Chile’s success.” With this tribute to both a long history and a promising future of cooperation and academic exchange between her country and the state of California, Chilean President Michelle Bachelet began her speech before a standing-room-only audience in the Chevron Auditorium at UC Berkeley’s International House, sponsored by the Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS).
