Judy Rosen Receives Chancellor's Award

UCSF's Director of Disability and Leave Administration was honored for disability service.

Judy Rosen, UCSF’s Director of Disability and Leave Administration, has received a 2023 Chancellor Award for Disability Service.

This award recognizes and honors individuals at UCSF who have demonstrated outstanding commitment and service in furthering the goal of enhancing accessibility of the physical, social, educational, clinical, administrative and virtual environment while promoting accommodation and full inclusion of people with disabilities within the UCSF community, beyond the scope of their job, area of research, or training.

Rosen was among 10 honorees at the recent Chancellor Awards for Diversity ceremony, which celebrates the exemplary service of faculty, staff and learners in advancing diversity in the university and broader community.

Rosen, who has worked at UCSF since 2006, says her whole career has been about helping people identify their strengths as well as their barriers and helping mitigate those barriers. She champions accessibility for all and has helped implement structural change through policy implementation and mindset evolution.

“Judy is someone I completely respect because she is not only effective in her work, but cares about people around her,” said Diane Ngo, project manager in the Department of Surgery, who nominated Judy for the award. “She has worked tirelessly behind the scenes, never asking for acknowledgment. It is now time for her to be recognized and celebrated as a great champion for the disability community at UCSF.”
