Every year, UC San Diego recognizes new faculty and those who’ve achieved career milestones at a special gathering hosted by the Chancellor and Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Suresh Subramani.  This year, more than 80 faculty members and their guests attended the reception at Geisel University House.  Chancellor Khosla and EVC Subramani welcomed and congratulated the faculty, and emphasized UC San Diego’s tradition of hiring the world’s best scholars.  They also talked about our Strategic Plan initiatives that focus on expanding faculty and supporting multi-disciplinary research.

Investing in Our Students and Our Future

Chancellor Khosla joined representatives of the ARCS Foundation San Diego Chapter for a special check presentation ceremony, along with many of this year’s fellowship awardees.  This year, the ARCS Foundation awarded $232,500 in UC San Diego fellowships.  Chancellor Khosla thanked ARCS for their continuing support of our graduate students, who fuel research, mentor undergraduates and investigate solutions to global challenges.  Since 1987, the local ARCS chapter has given more than $4 million in unrestricted funds to UC San Diego.
