Description

It's work grew out of the work of pioneering grassroots organizations like the Black Caucus. The collection is comprised of administrative materials collected and used by the Office of Diversity and Outreach from 1997-2020. This includes mostly papers, including annual reports, campus-wide statistics and published papers on unconscious bias, sexism, racism and workplace harassment. Also included are 20 posters from past O.D.O. events, a Beach Blanket Babylon hat/art piece, and audiovisual materials including VHS tapes and CD-ROMs on subjects related to diversity and inclusion.
Background
The Office of Diversity and Outreach was established in 2009 after student activists sent a critical Call to Action to UCSF leadership. The O.D.O.'s work grew out of the work of pioneering grassroots organizations at UCSF, like the Black Caucus, who supported campus janitors during a strike in the 1970s. By their own description, the O.D.O.'s mission is "to build a broadly diverse faculty, student, trainee and staff community, to nurture a culture that is welcoming and supportive, and to engage diverse ideas for the provision of culturally competent education, discovery and patient care." O.D.O. gathers statistics and compiles reports on campus-wide diversity, provides training and educational resources, and works towards the prevention of descrimination, harassment, and sexual violence.
