The Mission of the Community Advisory Group (CAG) is to (1) to serve as a community advisory body and sounding board for UCSF administration on planning issues, based on both a neighborhood and a city-wide perspective; (2) assist UCSF in strengthening communication with and engagement of the public on broader issues of community concern; (3) provide essential and relevant feedback on programs, campus planning and development activities; and (4) identify strategies and actions for addressing community concerns.
UCSF Goals for the CAG:
UCSF strives to ensure a diverse, representative and dedicated membership on the CAG with an organizational structure that promotes engagement. The CAG should represent independent voices and perspectives; represent the diversity of San Francisco; embody varied points of view, including critics; and bring the viewpoints of various and particular constituencies to the table, while keeping in mind a city-wide perspective.
- Review and discuss prospective plans and goals
- Facilitate the public's access to UCSF by serving as a community access point to UCSF on issues of concern
- Inform constituents about Community Advisory Group activities
- Inform UCSF of potential community issues
- Assist in problem-solving when community concerns arise
- Reach out to critics and engage them in the process to ensure that they have adequate information and that UCSF hears their point of view
