A Welcoming Space
UC Oracles provides a forum for public speaking to support professional and personal development.

UC Oracles Toastmasters was established on June 6, 2001 by a mid-management group oriented towards staff development. Our mission is to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every member has the opportunity to develop outstanding communication and leadership skills, fostering self-confidence and personal growth. 


Our club is open to the staff, faculty, students, researchers, post-docs and residents of UCSF. We are sponsored by UCSF’s Human Resources Development and Training program. UCSF and Chancellor Sam Hawgood support their employees and students in developing their communication and leadership skills by engaging in the Toastmasters program. For more information on Toastmasters International, visit


UC Oracles meets every Thursday (except the 1st Thursday of the month) from 12-1pm (see sidebar for room locations). Guests are always welcome to attend any of our meetings so drop in or contact us if you have questions.




Toastmasters is a journey of possibilities and achievements to build a better you!
