We lead integrated, outcome-driven communications to strengthen awareness of UCSF’s excellence across patient care, research and education. We also partner with the Office of Community & Government Relations on advocacy efforts that drive engagement in the issues that matter to our campus and clinical enterprise.

The office is led by Vice Chancellor Won Ha, who joined UCSF in 2019. In his role, Ha oversees the development and implementation of multichannel communications programs to champion the University’s mission of advancing health worldwide. He serves as lead counsel to the chancellor and UCSF’s executive team on issues related to internal and external communications, including media relations.
