“UC San Diego Tritons are courageous, curious and driven. We take risks, push the frontiers of knowledge and challenge conventional thinking. We break things—not with abandon, but with conviction—because we know we can make them better.”

The Campaign for UC San Diego is now officially in the public phase.  The ambitious and historic 10-year, $2 billion fundraising effort was announced and celebrated Saturday night at RIMAC.  During the event, Chancellor Khosla shared another big announcement—a $75 million gift from alumnus Taner Halicioglu to establish the Halicioglu Institute for Data Science, which will unite brilliant minds across all disciplines at UC San Diego to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges.  During the first four-and-a-half years—the quiet phase—UC San Diego has raised $1.3 billion toward the campaign goal, with contributions from more than 90,000 unique donors.
