The Office of Diversity and Outreach promotes its mission, and the mission of the University, through its visibility efforts weaving a tapestry of cultures, customs, and ideas that form our rich, diverse campus community.

Throughout its history, various communities at UCSF have advocated for an increase commitment to diversity. Some of these efforts date back to the 1970’s when the janitors supported by the UCSF Black Caucus went on strike, in part to demand more opportunities for minority students and faculty to be recruited to the university as well as to call attention to injustices they faced in their day to day.

The work of the Office of Diversity and Outreach advances diversity, equity and inclusion for the entire campus and health system.
