Advancing Excellence in Faculty Recruitment & Leadership
Diversity is a defining feature of California's past, present, and future, and is essential to teaching, scholarship, research, and service. UCSF is committed to reflecting this diversity in our faculty, students and other academic personnel. Our campus works to fulfill these values by recruiting and retaining diverse scholars, especially those who have been systematically and historically underrepresented, prioritizing diversity and inclusion when hiring new faculty members. Our Faculty Equity Advisors are charged with leading this effort.
