Several UC San Diego experts are featured in a recent article in The San Diego Union-Tribune focusing on how San Diego biomedical scientists are shaping President Obama’s initiatives in areas such as brain, cancer, microbiome and precision medicine.  As previously blogged, Chancellor Khosla is among the featured scientists, engineers and physicians, as are UC San Diego innovators Larry Smarr, Jill Mesirov, Scott Lippman, Rob Knight, Catriona Jamieson and alumnus J. Craig Venter.

Honoring Outstanding Service and Contributions

Every year, UC San Diego honors 10 campus members who make exceptional contributions to UC San Diego and our community in support of our vision as a student-centered, research-focused, service-oriented public university.  The annual Exemplary Staff Employee of the Year award ceremony was held yesterday.  Chancellor Khosla personally thanked and congratulated each of this year’s honorees, and talked about how much he values and recognizes the important role and contributions of UC San Diego staff.  Learn more about this year’s award recipients.

Cultivating Community Connections

The Chancellor recently hosted members of the Chancellor’s Community Advisory Board (CCAB) at Geisel University House for the board’s annual spring meeting.  He thanked the community members for their support in strengthening relationships between the university and community, and for promoting campus diversity.  CCAB members have played a vital role in encouraging underrepresented students to apply to UC San Diego and accept our offer of admission.  Many have attended campus and community events, like the annual Black Family Get-Together and admissions sessions in Los Angeles and the Bay Area, to recruit students from underserved communities.
