Hearts and Scholars is an annual event that unites UC San Diego scholarship recipients with the philanthropists who support them.  This year’s dinner attracted the largest audience of scholarship supporters.  Chancellor Khosla shared with the crowd the important impact of scholarships, as they transform students’ lives and the UC San Diego community for the better because each scholarship has a ripple effect as our students use their education to change our world.  The Chancellor expressed his pride in our students’ dedication and efforts to give back to their communities and his optimism for their future accomplishments.

He also emphasized that being a student-centered university is the foremost priority of our university and our Campaign for UC San Diego.  Two new scholarship programs were announced at this year’s dinner: the Steve and Sue Hart Student Success Endowment, a visionary leadership gift supporting scholarships, tutoring, mentoring, and mental health counseling for students, and the Karen and Jeff Silberman Chancellor’s Associates Inspiration Challenge, a historic $1 million program matching dollar-for-dollar gifts to support Chancellor’s Associates Scholarships.

Meeting with Warren College Student Leaders

Leaders from the Warren College Student Council invited Chancellor Khosla to join their meeting last night, giving students the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the exciting developments occurring at UC San Diego.  The Chancellor shared how the current transformation of our campus is going to enhance the student experience.  As an example, he described how the university’s vision of creating a “Live-Learn-Play” community will come to life through the North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood (NTPLLN), the new home for Sixth College which will include student housing, class and lab space, and two new academic buildings – one for Arts and Humanities and one for Social Sciences. He emphasized that the university is committed to offering accessible and affordable student housing, as well as student-centered resources and opportunities to help students succeed, here at UC San Diego and in their careers.

Reaffirming the University’s Commitment to Diversity

Every year, UC San Diego hosts a daylong professional development event that provides female faculty with the opportunity to network and celebrate their significant contributions to our campus. The 6th annual UC San Diego Women Faculty Reception was held yesterday at the Price Center.  At the event, Chancellor Khosla reaffirmed the university’s commitment to gender equality, opportunity and accessibility, and emphasized the indispensable role diversity plays in creating a vibrant academic environment.  The event featured seminars, workshops and a keynote address, and was hosted by the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
