A Message from the Chancellor
When it comes to my priority of business, there’s good news, bad news and encouraging news.
Business – shorthand for our balance sheet and our operational efficiency – remains the area where we face the most pressing challenges. As a $3.6 billion non-profit enterprise with an annual operating budget of $3.3 billion, UCSF must remain financially secure if we want to properly educate the next generation of health sciences professionals, carry out unparalleled scientific research and achieve our mission of advancing health worldwide.™

As a magnet for biotech and pharmaceutical firms large and small, the Mission Bay campus is poised to accelerate collaboration between private industry and the University.
