Increasing Innovation through Education and Collaboration

UC San Diego is creating a new array of programs for veteran entrepreneurs, open to all former military men and women across San Diego.  At the launch celebration last night, Chancellor Khosla announced the Certificate in Entrepreneurship that will provide veterans with the basic elements of technology-intensive entrepreneurism and the Veterans Venture that will support the creation of veteran start-up companies.  Many traditional universities support only campus entrepreneurs, but the Chancellor pointed out we are a nontraditional campus and our veteran community is an essential source of creativity and ideas that can benefit our society and enhance our regional entrepreneurial ecosystem.  

Chancellor Khosla chatted with Congresswoman Susan Davis, Congressman Darrell Issa, Congressman Scott Peters and VC Sandy Brown before the program began.  Attendees included government and university leaders, veterans, students, alumni and staff.

Student veterans from the Rady School of Management showcased their start-up companies.

Meeting with Warren College Students

The Warren College Student Council invited Chancellor Khosla to a meeting last night to discuss campus priorities and goals, and to give students an opportunity to ask questions.  The Chancellor talked about the physical transformation of the campus and how the upcoming changes will enhance the student experience by providing more student housing, classroom space, teaching labs and amenities for students.  A lively discussion session followed with questions posed from students via Facebook and from the student councilmembers themselves.  Topics ranged from student well-being and transportation, to time-to-degree initiatives and alumni involvement.

The construction of the Center for Novel Therapeutics is officially underway after a groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday.  The Center will serve as a hub of collaboration across disciplines and industries to promote the creation of new personalized therapeutics and shorten the time required to bring these new discoveries to clinical trials.  At the groundbreaking, Chancellor Khosla described UC San Diego’s ambitious research goals, including finding new cures and eradicating disease, like cancer.  The Chancellor also emphasized how this center’s foundation of interdisciplinary collaboration and public-private partnership are crucial ingredients to this center’s bench-to-bedside research focus.
