UC San Diego’s Jacobs Medical Center is poised to change the future of healthcare in San Diego and beyond.  A special reception was held at the Center’s construction site on Friday to thank the more than 1,000 supporters who’ve contributed to the facility.  In all, donors have given more than $131 million to the project, including gifts that matched a $25 million Challenge donation.  Last week, it was revealed that Joan and Irwin Jacobs were the extraordinary individuals who provided the previously anonymous Challenge gift, in addition to the $75 million lead gift for the facility in 2010.  Generous gifts from Carol Vassiliadis and Pauline Foster led to the namings of the A. Vassiliadis Family Hospital for Advanced Surgery and the Pauline and Stanley Foster Hospital for Cancer Care at the Jacobs Medical Center.

In thanking the Jacobs and all of the donors who made leadership gifts, Chancellor Khosla commented that our supporters are visionaries who are propelling UC San Diego’s mission and vision to create a healthier world through new science, new medicine and new cures.  Read more about the Jacobs Medical Center and its supporters.

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.
