Honoring Native American History and Culture

“This tradition gives our campus members the opportunity to learn more about the rich culture and history of Native Americans, and strengthens the ties between UC San Diego and our tribal communities.” - Chancellor Khosla

UC San Diego was proud to once again host an annual Powwow on campus over the weekend on Warren Field.  The 6th annual Native American gathering was hosted by the Native American Student Alliance.  The event focused on dance, song and family celebration.  Several campus leaders attended the Powwow including Vice Chancellors Becky Petitt and Gary Matthews and the inaugural Inter-Tribal Resource Center Director Elena Hood, who will join UC San Diego next month.

UC San Diego’s Bioengineering Department is celebrating 50 years of achievements in education and research.  To commemorate the founding of the bioengineering program at UC San Diego, which later became a department in 1994, a gala was held on Friday evening at the Birch Aquarium.  During the program, Chancellor Khosla talked about how the bioengineering program was founded in the same spirit as the campus, as an innovative, collaborative and experimental place.  The bioengineering graduate program has been consistently ranked number one in the nation by the National Research Council.

UC San Diego is building a stronger Triton network by connecting alumni and supporters around the nation with the university through UC San Diego and You.  The program is designed to deliver groundbreaking research and other exciting projects happening on campus with our friends where they live.  Last night, a UC San Diego and You event was held in New York City.  Chancellor Khosla shared advances we are making toward our Strategic Plan goals, and three faculty guest speakers shared their groundbreaking research in nanotechnology, development economics and ethnographically based work.  Read what alumni who’ve attended UC San Diego and You events have to say about the program.
