$50 million gift for the Bowes Biomedical Investigator Program
With the holidays upon us – a time of celebration, appreciation, and grace – there could be no more fitting moment to share this extraordinary news: Bill Bowes, one of the most cherished members of our UCSF family, has pledged a $50 million gift to support early- and mid-career faculty at UCSF.
Bill, like all of you, knows well how powerful and crucial this particular form of support is. Indeed, it is because of the generosity of Bill and others that UCSF is known for identifying talented investigators early in their careers and providing the support they need to allow their scientific imagination to flourish.

Urgent Message from Chancellor Hawgood
Dear Members of the UCSF Community,
Across America, we have heard of an alarming wave of recent incidents of prejudice against groups and individuals because of their race, religion, disability, sexual orientation or other differences, including political beliefs.
In the past week, several members of our community also have reported that they have experienced disturbing and disrespectful incidents here at UCSF.

After the Election: Strength in Our Unity and Diversity
The results of Tuesday’s election have been met with a range of emotions in our community.
Over the last several days, we—along with the leadership team of the Differences Matter initiative and similar programs across the entire campus—have been hearing from immigrant (including DACA), Muslim, LGBT, and minority learners, as well as faculty, staff and patients. The common theme being expressed is that many people are feeling personally vulnerable because of the rhetoric voiced during the election season.
