Dear UCSF Community,

One of our goals at UCSF is to ensure that people in our university community feel empowered and valued in an environment that fosters diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The Chancellor’s leadership team continues to work on multiple fronts to create a culture in which faculty, staff, and learners from all backgrounds feel welcomed, supported, and respected.

To better understand how we are doing in this regard, we invite you to share your perspectives and experiences about the environment in which you work and learn through the UCSF Climate Survey. On October 11, you will receive an email with a unique link to the confidential survey, which closes November 30.

Please complete this survey to help us build upon and enrich our diverse culture. Your feedback will help us develop action plans to strengthen our community. Your opinions matter and have already led to changes that have improved UCSF. You can read more about the survey in this campus news story.

We appreciate your contributions to the UCSF community and look forward to your thoughts on how we can continue to improve our campus climate.
