The Chancellor’s Medal recognizes visionaries whose long-standing contributions have supported promising students and furthered meaningful research, community leaders who have helped the campus and local communities grow and prosper, and extraordinary individuals who have inspired our community and enhanced the quality of life of San Diegans through their involvement with UC San Diego.

Conceived in 2000, the Chancellor’s Medal is presented in conjunction with celebrations marking Founders’ Day, November 18.
