Building Our Inclusive Community
The #WhiteCoats4BlackLives movement, started by our students last December, catalyzed an important and ongoing discussion about violence, social injustice, and inequities that are prevalent in our society and focused us on the work we must do within on our own campus to become a truly inclusive community.

Earthquake in Nepal
Dear Colleagues, Like you, I am greatly saddened by the tremendous loss of life and widespread devastation resulting from Saturday’s powerful earthquake in Nepal. Our thoughts are with the victims and people of Nepal and members of the UCSF community who have family, friends or colleagues in the affected areas.

Tobacco Free at Work
Dear Members of the Campus Community,
More than one year has passed since UCSF implemented a Tobacco Free at Work policy. As a reminder, this policy applies to all UCSF faculty, staff, students, and trainees. The policy states that all are required to be tobacco-free while at work and refrain from tobacco and e-cigarette use during any scheduled work shift (including all breaks), whether on or off campus.
