The latest road show for UC San Diego and You was held in Los Angeles earlier this week with Chancellor Khosla and three distinguished faculty traveling north to connect with alumni and university supporters.  The faculty shared their groundbreaking research – from microbiome to American politics to international security – that is changing our world.  The Chancellor talked about the importance and success of our alumni, as well as our vision to transform UC San Diego to meet the evolving needs of our campus members and benefit our local and global communities.

Recognizing Our Exceptional Faculty

To welcome new faculty to campus and celebrate current faculty career milestones, Chancellor Khosla hosts a special reception at the beginning of each academic year at Geisel University House.  More than 150 faculty attended the event last week.  The Chancellor and Interim Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Peter Cowhey welcomed and congratulated the faculty, emphasizing UC San Diego’s tradition of hiring the world’s best scholars.  Chancellor Khosla also talked about the university’s strategic efforts – from campus investments that fuel multi-disciplinary research to providing world-class facilities and resources – to support faculty in their teaching and research endeavors.

Celebrating the Future Arrival of the UC San Diego Blue Line

As part of the launch of the UC San Diego Blue Line on Saturday, hundreds of people downtown checked out the newly branded trolley cars that feature the boundary-breaking work that we do, from building minds to saving lives.  Professor Todd Coleman was there to talk about his innovative research in wireless sensor technology, which inspired the tattooed trolley design.  Attendees were treated to an original chalk art piece representing the trolley’s arrival to UC San Diego in 2021.  Also on display, and available for use, are our new plant-powered charging stations at the Gaslamp Quarter and Old Town/UC San Diego Hillcrest trolley stations.
