The Asian Pacific American Systemwide Alliance (APASA) at UCSF was formed in 1988 to address issues impacting the Asian Pacific community and continues to promote professional and social relations within UCSF, as well as the rich and diverse cultural heritage of all Asian communities. In past years, APASA organized various cultural events including entertainment, speakers and workshops to celebrate, embrace and progress our Asian community at UCSF. APASA works closely with other UCSF minority organizations to address issues of equality, fair labor practices and diversity at UCSF.
We are committed to building a broadly diverse community, to nurture a culture that is welcoming and supportive, and to engage diverse ideas for the provision of culturally competent education, discovery and patient care.
We monitor diversity and inclusion with regular reports on campus efforts, campus climate, and campus progress.
We accomplish our work by serving as a central resource on campus for our internal and external community members highlighting news and programming that foster a collaborative culture.
The work of the Office of Diversity and Outreach advances diversity, equity and inclusion for the entire campus and health system.
The Office of Diversity and Outreach continues to maintain a commitment to building, nurturing and engaging diversity and inclusion across the campus.
