UCSF in the Community

Serving the community has been ingrained in the ethos of UC San Francisco since the early days of treating neighbors in need after the great 1906 earthquake in San Francisco.

For more than 150 years, UCSF has been an integral member of the community as a public university, health care provider and leader in life sciences research. UCSF forges many fruitful partnerships in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond creating new models for partnering with leading innovators in academia, science, technology and industry in pursuit of its advancing health worldwide™ mission.
