Summary Description

The Office of Diversity and Outreach (ODO) serves as the campus leader in building diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in all aspects of the UCSF mission through building consensus, ongoing assessment, development of new programs and systems changes. We are responsible for and collaborate with the four professional schools, the Graduate Division, and the medical center, to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion across UCSF.

The Vice Chancellor's Office of Diversity and Outreach includes oversight for the Center for Science Education and Outreach, LGBT, Multicultural and CARE Resource Centers, the Office for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination, Sexual Violence Prevention and Response, The Faculty and Staff Equity Advisers and the direct office of the vice chancellor of Diversity and Outreach. 

The mission of the office is to build a broadly diverse faculty, student, trainee and staff community, to nurture a culture that is welcoming and supportive, and to engage diverse ideas for the provision of culturally competent education, discovery, patient care and community engagement. Our priority is to develop and execute a comprehensive strategic plan for diversity and outreach that supports UCSF’s mission of advancing health worldwide, and the recruitment and retention of talented employees and students who contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusive excellence.
