Earthquake in Nepal
Dear Colleagues, Like you, I am greatly saddened by the tremendous loss of life and widespread devastation resulting from Saturday’s powerful earthquake in Nepal. Our thoughts are with the victims and people of Nepal and members of the UCSF community who have family, friends or colleagues in the affected areas.

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.
