Our Ongoing Commitment to Anti-Racism and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Through Differences Matter and the Dean’s Diversity Fund, we have helped change the culture at UCSF. We have built needed infrastructure, started a dialogue, and implemented early interventions. Now comes the deeper, longer work of denouncing anti-Black racism, promoting antiracist policies and practices at UCSF, and investing in comprehensive strategies to achieve equity for all learners, trainees, faculty, and staff, and health equity for the patients we serve.
