Serving the San Francisco Bay Area
Since its founding in 1968, CIIS’ symbiotic relationship with the San Francisco Bay Area has continued to deepen and grow. This dynamic region and its people are an intrinsic part of the CIIS experience. In turn, CIIS has a profound impact on the Bay Area community through its community clinics, public programs, and arts that bring academic inquiry and healing into everyday life.
