UCSF Announces “Win-Win” Plan re: Golden State Warriors in San Francisco

Dear Members of the UCSF Community:

As you may have heard, UCSF has been in negotiations regarding the proposed Warriors arena and events center on 11 acres located at the intersection of 16th and Third Streets, diagonally across the street from the UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay. Our focus has been on ensuring that the appropriate mitigations are in place to effectively manage the projected increase in traffic to facilitate access to the hospitals for our patients, their families, and our health care workers.

Tobacco Free at Work

Dear Members of the Campus Community,

More than one year has passed since UCSF implemented a Tobacco Free at Work policy. As a reminder, this policy applies to all UCSF faculty, staff, students, and trainees. The policy states that all are required to be tobacco-free while at work and refrain from tobacco and e-cigarette use during any scheduled work shift (including all breaks), whether on or off campus.

Update on the Future of UCSF

Dear Members of the UCSF Community:
I am writing with an update regarding the progress of the campus-wide exercise that the UCSF community completed in late 2013 and early 2014 – the UCSF2025 online game and subsequent workshops. These efforts, to generate big ideas for the future of UCSF, engaged a diverse and large proportion of our community, and many of you have asked what the follow-up has been thus far. The following provides a status of the overall UCSF 2.0 initiative.
