Reminder: Please take the 2021 UCSF Climate Survey for Faculty, Staff, Students, and Trainees

Dear Colleagues:

Each of us brings a special quality to UCSF, and your feedback will provide leadership with the information needed to make our university one of the best places to work and study.

To do accomplish this, we need to hear about your experience at UCSF through the 2021 UCSF Climate Survey. While you have through November 30 to take it, please don’t wait. We are in the home stretch with only a few days remaining.

We are currently at an overall response rate of 34%, and we need a stronger turnout. Help the University better understand your perceptions and experiences about the environment in which you work and learn. Make your voice heard and seize this opportunity to let us know how things are and are not working for you. If you’re part of that 34%, thank you! If you aren’t, then you should be receiving weekly reminders from Emma White Research with your unique survey link.

At UCSF we know that data is key to gaining insight to identifying gaps as well as successes. We are many different people with equally varying roles and responsibilities; therefore, it’s imperative that the data reflect the entire university, i.e., faculty and other academic appointees, staff, students, postdocs, fellows, and residents.

A weekly random drawing for twenty-five $50 gift cards is well underway, and at the conclusion of the survey, three individuals will be chosen at random to receive an iPad. (Because the value and cost exceed the non-taxable limit, the entire amount is subject to withholding as income.)

With full recognition that all members of the UCSF community are working hard under continued pandemic circumstances as well as during uncertain and challenging times to uphold our missions of research, learning, and patient care, I thank you for your resilience and contributions.

Best wishes,

Daniel H. Lowenstein, MD
Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost
Dr. Robert B. and Mrs. Ellinor Aird Professor of Neurology
