Raising Awareness and Supporting Students

UC San Diego is hosting numerous events on campus to commemorate National Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). The goal is to raise awareness about sexual assault violence and to educate people on how to prevent sexual violence.  Last night, CARE at the Sexual Assault Resource Center hosted the 4th annual 3K on campus, along with several campus sponsors.  Chancellor Khosla greeted the runners and walkers at the start line, and sounded the horn to begin the race. All proceeds from the SAAM 3K support group activities for UC San Diego students who are survivors of sexual assault.

Celebrating 20 Years of Innovation and Impact

“For a young campus like UC San Diego, our record of innovation and achievement is truly extraordinary.” – Chancellor Khosla

UC San Diego’s Technology Transfer Office (TTO) is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.  The office was established to locally manage university-developed intellectual property.  To commemorate the milestone anniversary, several campus and community leaders—including Chancellor Khosla, Dr. Irwin Jacobs and San Diego City Mayor Kevin Faulconer—attended a reception at the Faculty Club and shared in the celebration of UC San Diego’s legacy of innovation and impact.

In the past two decades, TTO has assisted campus researchers who have created over 6,000 innovations, which has led to more than 1,000 US patents, 1,000 licenses to commercialize new products, and the formation of over 200 startup companies that were founded on licensed university intellectual property.  This is an impressive portfolio, especially for a campus that was established only five decades ago.

Dr. Irwin Jacobs and Mayor Kevin Faulconer both spoke at the event.  Former UC President and UC San Diego Chancellor Emeritus Bob Dynes also attended, as did Chancellor Emerita Marye Anne Fox.

Supporting Student Success through Scholarships

“We want to help you achieve your goals and dreams.” – Chancellor Khosla

UC San Diego’s newest Chancellor’s Associates Scholars and their family members received a warm welcome from students, staff, faculty and university supporters at a celebratory reception at the Joe and Vi Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation in Southeast San Diego this week.  Chancellor Khosla opened the program by congratulating the students on their admission, encouraging them to choose UC San Diego, and thanking all of the people who’ve helped the students on their road to success.  He then awarded each scholar with a blue and gold honor cord, explaining that it signifies our pledge to help them throughout their academic career and that he hopes they’ll wear it again when they graduate as Tritons.

The Chancellor’s Associates Scholars program was established two years ago to support local, low-income students from UC San Diego’s three partner schools.  It has since been expanded to include students from Reality Changers who have completed UC San Diego’s Academic Connections program and California students enrolled in federally recognized tribes.
