2018 Staff Engagement Survey

Dear Members of the UCSF Community,

On April 24, you will receive an invitation to participate in the 2018 UCSF Staff Engagement Survey. This survey is important for helping us understand the progress toward our shared goal of making UCSF a great place to work.

Since 2011, Gallup has conducted five engagement surveys at UCSF. Over the years, you and your managers have worked hard to develop and implement action plans across departments and units, which have resulted in a steady increase in overall staff engagement.

Celebrating NIH Funding, UCSF’s Advocacy

Dear Members of the UCSF Community,

Last Friday, Congress passed, and the President signed into law, an annual funding bill that included a $3 billion increase in NIH research funding, as well as significant increases to the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy’s Office of Science, and other important federal research programs. This remarkable growth in research funding reflects determined advocacy efforts that spanned the academic community.

Confidence in UCSF Health

Dear Colleagues,

We write to share our thanks for the unwavering commitment of our faculty and staff to providing the best quality care for our patients and for the positive impact this is having on patients’ lives. While this is always true, we recognize that the last few months have been particularly challenging as we have seen a record number of inpatients.

Season’s Greetings

Dear Members of the UCSF Community,

As this year ends, I express my heartfelt appreciation for the great work you have done at UCSF on behalf of our students, patients, their families, and community.

This year, thanks to your contributions and support, we accomplished a great deal, as told in UCSF’s year-in-review story. Each feat is a testament to the vision, determination, collaborative spirit, and compassion in our community.

Sexual Misconduct

Dear Members of the UCSF Community,

The revelations of serious sexual misconduct across the nation over the last several months have underscored its devastating impact on individuals and organizations. These highly-publicized instances of workplace sexual harassment and sexual assault call on all institutions, including UCSF, to redouble their efforts to end abusive behaviors. We are committed to a UCSF community that is free from harassment and discrimination.

Mayor Ed Lee

Dear Members of the UCSF Community:

I am deeply saddened to learn of the death of Mayor Ed Lee. He was an extraordinarily decent, upbeat, and dedicated leader of San Francisco, and a staunch ally of UCSF in our mission to provide high-quality health care for all, teach the next generation of innovators and caregivers in the health sciences, and drive breakthroughs in research. I had the pleasure and honor of working closely with Mayor Lee over the past several years on a variety of UCSF-City partnerships.
