Dear Colleagues:

I write to request nominations for the 2011 Chancellor’s Disability Service Award. Each year three individuals—one academic, one staff, and one student/resident/postdoctoral scholar—may be selected to receive this award in recognition of extraordinary leadership and inspiration in furthering the goal of achieving awareness and equity for the disabled community within the UCSF community.

Please consider those UCSF individuals whose special efforts merit this distinction. The nomination form and award criteria are available on the Office of the Chancellor website. Hard copy nomination forms will be available at Laurel Heights Room S-16. I encourage you to take the time to nominate deserving colleagues.

Nominations are due by 5:00 p.m., Friday, December 16, 2011, in the Office of Diversity & Outreach, Box 0294, Laurel Heights Room S-16. If you have questions, please call 476-4753.

Sincerely,

Susan Desmond-Hellmann, MD, MPH
Chancellor
