Big Ideas for UCSF 2.0 Initiative Move Forward

UC San Francisco is moving forward in its quest to map its future through year 2025, an initiative known as UCSF 2.0.


Since the big ideas were first generated from the online UCSF 2025 game in September, faculty and staff have met in a series of focus groups and workshops that concluded in December to elaborate on future directions across UCSF's missions in health sciences education, patient care and research.

These ideas are now being shared and explored across the University in the ongoing long-term visioning effort led by Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Jeff Bluestone, PhD, Mark Laret, chief executive officer of UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, and John Ford, vice chancellor of University Development and Alumni Affairs will continue over the next few months.

Over the next few months, the big ideas will be further refined and compiled into “idea maps” that can be incorporated into a long-term vision for the University. During the final phase, ideas will be selected for further planning and assigned to owners and teams for development of specific strategic plans.

University Relations will post regular updates on this initiative through Inside UCSF, the internally focused web portals for faculty and staff. Members of the UCSF community will be able to comment on UCSF 2.0 via the Inside UCSF blog here
