Community Relations informs the community about UCSF campus plans and activities, gathers community feedback about upcoming projects, and relays any concerns or suggestions to our campus decision makers.


Government Relations and Advocacy

Government Relations acts as a liaison between UCSF and government decision makers at the local, state, and federal level. This department helps UCSF obtain necessary public funding and also advocates for public policy that supports the university’s teaching, patient care, research, and public service programs.


About Community and Government Relations

Community and Government Relations (CGR) is UCSF's most direct link to our neighbors, community groups, and government officials.  The CGR staff is committed to fostering a spirit of honest communication, mutual understanding, and creative collaboration with the people whose neighborhoods and concerns we share.


Benefits for Nonprofit Organizations


UCSF co-sponsors the use of conference facilities for San Francisco nonprofit organizations at the Parnassus Heights, and Mission Bay campuses. These subsidies offer local nonprofit groups access to our facilities for meetings, conferences, and other events at reduced cost. Annual subsidies are limited and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.


Long Range Development Plan

UCSF’s Long Range Development Plan (LRDP), created in 1996, was designed to guide the university’s physical development through 2012. UCSF is now embarking on its next LRDP, which has an expected planning horizon through the year 2030. Community involvement is a key facet of this planning process.
