    Results of 2017 Staff Engagement Survey

    Dear Colleagues,

    I am delighted to announce our 2017 UCSF-wide Staff Engagement Survey results. In February, I urged you to participate, and seventy percent of staff responded.

    We have achieved an overall UCSF grand mean of 3.93, based on a five-point scale. This is an improvement of .07 points from the 2015 score and marks significant improvement since the first Gallup survey at UCSF in 2011. The steady progress can be seen below:

    Need Your Input: Please Complete Communications Survey by April 24

    Dear Colleagues:

    At UCSF, our mission of advancing health worldwide guides us. To help us deliver on this promise, we need a strong communications foundation.

    To that end, UCSF is conducting a survey of faculty and staff to better understand our current communications environment – what’s working well and where we can make improvements. Our goal is that you feel informed about UCSF and that our communications are as timely, targeted and transparent as possible.

    UCSF Stands Up For Science

    Dear Members of the UCSF Community:

    As a public university, UCSF is firmly grounded in the belief that the expansion of knowledge, through scientific discovery, is core to our society’s freedom and prosperity. We also believe that our strength as a university stems from a culture that embraces diversity and inclusion, and respects every individual regardless of his or her religion or national origin.

    Federal budget, ACA, March for Science

    Dear Members of the UCSF Community:

    The severe budget cuts to federal funding for scientific research proposed by the new administration, particularly a 19 percent reduction in support for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), are deeply concerning. UCSF is fortunate to have been a top recipient of NIH funds for many years and, as a public institution, it has been our privilege to fulfill our pact with taxpayers by conducting research that has improved the health of all Americans.
