In 2001, Chancellor J. Michael Bishop commissioned a survey to study the
Climate for Women on the Faculty at UCSF. Based on the survey findings, the Chancellor convened a Task Force on the Climate for Faculty that offered several key recommendations in areas such as mentoring, leadership, institutional welcoming and work-life balance. In response, the Chancellor formed the Chancellor’s Council on Faculty Life (CCFL) which was charged with recommending pertinent policies, monitoring progress and maintaining visibility of the initiative.  A subsequent survey was conducted in 2011 with an expanded scope. A subcommittee of the CCFL reviewed the survey results and developed an action plan based on these results.  In the summer of 2013, the CCFL was renamed the Campus Council on Faculty Life.

The Council is chaired by Vice Provost Brian Alldredge and its membership includes 21 faculty from all academic ranks, series, and major campus sites; the members represent scientists as well as clinician educators from all disciplines. The Council is charged with developing programs in response to the Faculty Climate Survey as well as considering other means of improving faculty life.
