UC San Diego is known for transforming the world, but that doesn’t mean you have to skip lunch. That was the message scrawled on the pails at the Chancellor’s annual Lunchbox Club. Twelve staff members enjoyed a lunch of sandwiches and chips with the Chancellor in his office yesterday, after having their names chosen from a drawing at the All-Staff Picnic. Chancellor Khosla said that he enjoys the annual tradition because it gives him an opportunity to converse with staff members from diverse areas of campus in a casual setting and he can personally thank staff for the work that they do to support the university. Each lunch guest got to take home their commemorative lunchbox.
“This is an extraordinary achievement, and it’s a testament to the hard work and dedication of the amazing people here at UC San Diego.” – Chancellor Khosla

For the fifth consecutive year, UC San Diego is ranked the number one university in the nation by Washington Monthly based on three criteria: social mobility, research and service. The publication gave high marks to institutions that contribute to society, enroll low-income students, help students graduate and maintain affordability. Chancellor Khosla says this ranking exemplifies our core values and our vision to be a student-centered, research-focused, service-oriented public university that provides opportunity for all. In addition to UC San Diego’s top honor, the University of California as a whole received praise by Washington Monthly, with six UC campuses included in the top 20 of the list and four campuses listed in the top five.
