Resources for Students

CARE (Campus Advocacy, Resources and Education): The CARE Program provides free, confidential support to any UCSF affiliate including students, staff, faculty, post docs and researchers who have experienced discrimination, harassment, or abuse related to race, ethnicity, national origin or other protected identities AND to any UCSF affiliate who has experienced interpersonal violence such as sexual assault, dating/intimate partner violence, sexual harassment or stalking.

Office of Disability Access and Inclusion: The Office of Disability Access and Inclusion (ODAI) was established in 2021 as part of UCSF's commitment to ensuring an accessible and inclusive environment for people with disabilities to work, learn, visit, and receive healthcare at UCSF.  Our office provides training, programs, and resources that empower and support the UCSF campus and health community in advancing its commitment to disability access, inclusion, and anti-ableism. We aim to affirm and celebrate disabled students, faculty, staff, and their allies, and foster a sense of belonging and pride at UCSF.

Office of the Ombuds: The Office of the Ombuds serves as a resource for all members of the UCSF community (faculty, non-faculty academics, staff, administrators, students, post-doctoral fellows and other trainees) and offers a safe, confidential place to discuss UCSF-related issues and explore possibilities for informally addressing concerns.

Student Disability Services: Student Disability Services serves, supports, and empowers UCSF students with disabilities by ensuring equitable access to fully and holistically participate in all areas of the university experience.

Student Health & Counseling Services: The mission of Student Health and Counseling Services is to optimize the physical and mental health of students in order to help them achieve academic success, personal development and lifelong wellness.
