Welcome to the Black Caucus

The Black Caucus was founded in 1968 from the direct action of UCSF staff who advocated for change.


Our mission:

The Black Caucus is a forum open to all Black-identified individuals and allies on this campus. Here they may openly express themselves regarding matters of race as they affect life on the campus and in the community. The Black Caucus serves as an instrument for the formation of a Black consensus on those racial matters that affect every person on this campus. This consensus will then be presented to the Administration for appropriate action.
