Affirmative Action

The University of California, San Francisco is a federal contractor and complies with all affirmative action regulations enforced by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP). The purpose of OFCCP is to enforce, for the benefit of job seekers and wage earners, the contractual promise of affirmative action and equal employment opportunity required when doing business with the Federal government. Therefore, we take affirmative action to recruit and advance qualified minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and protected veterans.

UC San Francisco is committed to excellence through diversity and ensuring equal employment opportunity in the workplace. In accordance with federal regulations, UCSF will take affirmative action to ensure equal employment opportunities for all qualified applicants and employees regardless of race, color, religion, citizenship, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, lactation or related medical conditions), age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, or status as a disabled veteran or Vietnam-era veteran, or other protected veterans.

UC San Francisco takes affirmative actions to address underutilization in its workforce for women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, and protected veterans. The effort to achieve this goal is a collaboration between Human Resources, Academic Affairs, the Office of Diversity and Outreach, and the Office for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination (OPHD). OPHD is responsible for ensuring compliance with affirmative action regulations and does this through:

  • creating and/or monitoring of policies and guidelines;
  • creating annual affirmative action plans;
  • conducting internal reviews of personnel actions (hiring, promotions, terminations, compensation);
  • promoting equal opportunity programs and policies, including complaint resolution processes; and
  • conducting consultations with UCSF departments about compliance obligations.

Affirmative Action Plan

The UC San Francisco Affirmative Action Plan serves as a working document for informing the campus of programs and procedures undertaken to ensure equal employment opportunity and for implementing the campus commitment to affirmative action. University policies and federal regulations require that the Affirmative Action Plan be evaluated, monitored, and updated annually.

Equal Opportunity

It is the policy of UC San Francisco to include a statement that UCSF is an EEO/AA employer on all employment advertisements, including web postings, print, or other media. The following statement is required on all position announcements and advertisements:

UC San Francisco is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic information.
