Celebrating Diversity and Scholarship

"Thank you for being here to commemorate Black History Month, for contributing to our campus diversity and supporting student scholarships." - Chancellor Khosla

Celebrating diversity and recognizing student academic achievement were the focus of the 13th annual Black History Month Scholarship Brunch and Silent Auction held over the weekend at UC San Diego.  Proceeds from the event benefit the Ujima Network Black History Month Scholarship, awarded to two students every year. During the program, Chancellor Khosla talked about the importance of providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for our campus and community members, and thanked attendees for supporting student scholarships, which he said was a fundraising priority for the campus.  The Chancellor also introduced the keynote speaker, Giancarlo Esposito; the actor, director and producer is well known for his role as Gus Fring on “Breaking Bad.”
