Dear Colleagues,

The UC Office of the President posted today a report by the chair of the systemwide Working Group on Comprehensive Access (WGCA), which has worked since August 2019 to develop recommendations on the critically important issue of UC’s affiliations with faith-based health systems.

The WGCA chair’s report was presented to UC President Janet Napolitano earlier this month and is now available for public viewing at, along with comment letters from some of the individuals who served on the WGCA. The report will be presented to the UC Regents at their meeting in May.

We encourage you to read the report and share your perspectives via an online tool, which is available at the url above. The public comment period will run through February 21, 2020.
