The Yankelovich Center for Social Science Research identifies and finds solutions for important national problems. The center, which will receive continued support through a recent bequest from public opinion expert Daniel Yankelovich, is currently focused on improving upward mobility in the United States. To celebrate the transformative gift and recognize supporters of the center, Chancellor Khosla recently held a special reception at Geisel University House.  Yankelovich’s planned gift establishes a multimillion dollar endowed fund, one of the largest donations made to the Division of Social Sciences.  A loyal friend of the Social Sciences, Yankelovich has helped fund the center since its inception.

Honoring Native American History and Culture

“This tradition gives our campus members the opportunity to learn more about the rich culture and history of Native Americans, and strengthens the ties between UC San Diego and our tribal communities.” - Chancellor Khosla

UC San Diego was proud to once again host an annual Powwow on campus over the weekend on Warren Field.  The 6th annual Native American gathering was hosted by the Native American Student Alliance.  The event focused on dance, song and family celebration.  Several campus leaders attended the Powwow including Vice Chancellors Becky Petitt and Gary Matthews and the inaugural Inter-Tribal Resource Center Director Elena Hood, who will join UC San Diego next month.

UC San Diego’s Bioengineering Department is celebrating 50 years of achievements in education and research.  To commemorate the founding of the bioengineering program at UC San Diego, which later became a department in 1994, a gala was held on Friday evening at the Birch Aquarium.  During the program, Chancellor Khosla talked about how the bioengineering program was founded in the same spirit as the campus, as an innovative, collaborative and experimental place.  The bioengineering graduate program has been consistently ranked number one in the nation by the National Research Council.
