UHS challenges each individual to live a life of integrity, inquiry, and purpose larger than the self.

Institute for Responsive Education

We are excited to announce that UHS is now home to an Institute for Responsive Education that is composed of five Centers: Metacognition & Neurodiversity, Health & Wellness, Community Engagement, Climate Studies, and Equity & Community. From programs that center skill building (like workshops in Executive Functioning) to courses that ask big questions of how we might engage with the lived experiences of others (like a course on gathering Oral Histories from the Bay Area), the Institute also includes an array of unique Responsive Courses that intentionally reach across disciplinary boundaries. Keeping with the spirit of our community since its inception, the mission of UHS' Institute for Responsive Education is to offer programs that (i) respond dynamically to events and evolving circumstances within and beyond UHS, and that (ii) center inquiry, care, integrity, agency, and interconnection in the education of graduates who embody a “purpose larger than the self.” sfuhs.org/institute
