Making Connections for a Brighter Future

At the discussion of the tuition and financial aid stability plan during the UC Regents meeting at UCSF's Mission Bay campus, Chancellor Khosla provided an opportunity for two UC San Diego leaders—Associated Students President Robby Boparai and Associated Students Vice President External Allyson Osorio—to share lunch with Assembly Speaker and UC Regent Toni Atkins. Their conversation touched on future career plans for our students and the importance of a University of California education as the foundation for a successful career.

The Chancellor’s Medal is one of the highest honors given by UC San Diego for exceptional service in support of the university’s mission.  It is awarded every year at the Founders Celebration dinner, which took place on Saturday night.  The recipients were Sue and Steve Hart, who were recognized as generous philanthropists, advisors to academic leadership and mentors to students, and Denny Sanford, who pledged $100 million to establish the UC San Diego Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center—the second largest gift in the university’s history.  The Roger Revelle Medal was also awarded, recognizing faculty service to the campus.  The honorees were Shu Chien and Peter Gourevitch.  To read more about this year’s medalists, click here.
