Berkeley Interactive Theater was founded in 2008 as a UC Berkeley Campus Theater Company “to serve, educate, and train staff, faculty, administration, and students in the complex arenas of race, class, sexuality, ability, and status.” Their work is known for delivering excellent customized-learning theater experiences, based on research drawn from focus groups, shaped in collaboration with community members, and presented to audiences in an interactive style.

Graduate Student Instructor Training for Inclusive Classroom Teaching: Training content for BIT workshops are always tailored to address the unique needs of each audience. For example, Graduate Student Instructors — despite being some of the most diverse faculty members on campus — are often not included or considered in planning faculty trainings. Their unique concerns are, as a result, overlooked. BIT would provide content that directly addresses this particular issue.
