As a strong contributor to our community and regional economy, UC San Diego plays a key role in working with our partners to improve border innovation and crossing efficiency.  To celebrate the creation of the SENTRI program 20 years ago – which was a true collaborative effort that has been essential to the economic growth and viability of our bi-national region – a Roundtable event was held last week at the Institute of Americas on the UC San Diego campus.  Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom served as the keynote speaker, while Chancellor Khosla introduced the two panel discussions – one delving into the history and challenges of creating the program and another looking ahead at innovative solutions to address future border challenges.
