Important Message from UC President Janet Napolitano and UCSF

Dear UCSF Community,

This public health crisis has taken a significant toll on everyone’s lives, including the financial hardships it has created for many. In the face of the economic challenges brought on by COVID-19, we are doing what we can to support our UC community and provide stability during these uncertain times.

I, along with all the chancellors across the University of California system, joined UC President Janet Napolitano in signing a letter ensuring that there will be no COVID-19 related layoffs for career employees through the end of the fiscal year on June 30, 2020. You can read the entire message online.

Each campus is working with the UC Office of the President (UCOP) to confirm the details of how this will be implemented. Details are forthcoming.

In the meantime, I hope you are taking care of yourselves and looking after one another. You all have my gratitude for your commitment to fulfilling UCSF’s public health mission, especially during this extraordinary time.
