“This evening is about celebrating UC San Diego’s 56th anniversary and our supporters who have helped us to become one of the best public research universities in the world.” – Chancellor Khosla
The Chancellor’s Medal is one of the highest honors given by UC San Diego for exceptional service in support of the university’s mission. It is awarded every year at the Founders Celebration dinner, which took place on Saturday night. This year’s recipients are Peter C. Farrell, Richard and Carol Dean Hertzberg, Marion and Kwan So, and Daniel Yankelovich. Before presenting the medals, Chancellor Khosla thanked UC San Diego’s supporters for energizing our culture of challenging convention in order to unlock mysteries, transform lives and make our world a better place.
