Dear Colleagues:

I invite applications for the 2011 Excellence in Partnership Award. This award recognizes exemplary partnerships between San Francisco communities and UCSF that build on each other’s strength to improve higher education, civic engagement, and the overall health of communities.

The award description, selection criteria and application form are available online http://partnerships.ucsf.edu/eip. Three partnerships – one academic/faculty, one staff, one student/resident/postdoctoral scholar – will be selected to receive these awards at the Annual Partnerships Celebration on Thursday, October 20.

I hope you will take the time to submit your deserving university community partnerships programs. Applications must be sent via email to [email protected] by Tuesday, September 20, 2011. If you have questions, please contact University Community Partnerships Director Wylie Liu at [email protected] or 476-9122 or University Community Partnerships Faculty Co-Director Naomi Wortis at [email protected] or 206-6960.
