“Experience Parnassus” exhibit at the Faculty-Alumni House through March 31

Dear UCSF Community,

I am pleased to invite you to a special exhibit—Experience Parnassus—featuring UCSF’s plans for a re-imagined Parnassus Heights campus. The exhibit provides an overview of our ambitious plans to modernize our historic campus and strengthen our integrated mission of globally recognized education, research, and care delivery.

The Experience Parnassus exhibit includes an immersive 3D virtual reality tour of one of the first projects to be built: the proposed new state-of-the-art hospital at the UCSF Helen Diller Medical Center at Parnassus Heights. Designed by award-winning architects, engineers, and builders, the new hospital will create a “healing habitat” for patients. It will include spaces that foster human connection to Mount Sutro’s natural environs and promote collaboration between our educators, learners, researchers, and care providers.

The exhibit also showcases UCSF’s legacy of leadership and partnership with the City that has served San Franciscans through every public health emergency and every year in between for more than a century.

Located at the Faculty-Alumni House, the exhibit runs through the end of March and is open to the UCSF community and the general public. Due to limited capacity in the Faculty-Alumni House, please schedule your visit to the exhibit through Eventbrite.

To learn more about the Future of Parnassus, join me, Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Dan Lowenstein, and others for a town hall on March 23, from noon to 1 p.m. You may join us via Zoom.
