Celebrate the Night, an annual holiday party for night-time staff, has become a favorite tradition at UC San Diego since its inception in 2007. Last night, more than 100 staff members gathered for the festivities, enjoying food, music and fun. Chancellor Khosla stopped by to offer holiday wishes and to thank staff members for all that they do for UC San Diego. Celebrate the Night is hosted by the UC San Diego Staff Association.
Attendees had the opportunity to pose for commemorative photos. Members of the Staff Association's Celebrate the Night Committee are featured in this picture.

Chancellor Khosla stopped by the Town & Gown luncheon today at the Faculty Club to thank community members for supporting our campus and our students. The organization was formed in 2007 with the mission of promoting student scholarship and engaging San Diego residents in the life and work of UC San Diego. The number of scholarships awarded by Town & Gown continues to increase each year.
Town & Gown holds a luncheon on campus every month with a featured speaker who highlights the amazing work and research happening on campus. Today’s speaker was Professor Ralph Greenspan, director of the Center for Brain Activity Mapping (CBAM).
At the luncheon, Chancellor Khosla talked about his initial conversations with Greenspan about the development of CBAM and the challenge to map the human brain, and how they were at the White House when President Obama announced the BRAIN Initiative.
