Chancellor Optimistic About State of the University
By Louise Chu from UCSF.edu
State budget cuts have strained UCSF’s resources over the past year, but the University is adapting to the challenges and continues to lead the way in health sciences research, education and patient care, the chancellor said Tuesday.
“Those last several years that we’ve been living in the midst of great change and financial constraints have put a lot of stress on the people of UCSF,” said Chancellor Susan Desmond-Hellmann, MD, MPH.
But, she added, “even though I want to acknowledge the challenges, I want to thank the people who are persevering in their excellence in these challenges. … I’m optimistic because the people at UCSF are the ones who make us great.”
