This faculty leadership development program, sponsored by the Chancellorís Council on Faculty Life, began in 2005-06 in response to a survey that found a need for more opportunities to support and advance faculty careers. As of May 2010, 110 UCSF faculty have graduated from the program.
The program is being led by theCoro Center for Civic Leadership, a nationally recognized leadership training organization. The Collaborative is designed for UCSF faculty who want to build community as well as their personal and professional development skills, awareness and knowledge. Opportunities to network with other graduates and leaders and to participate in leadership activities are periodically offered to program graduates.
