Welcoming UC San Diego’s New Executive Vice Chancellor

Chancellor Khosla with EVC Elizabeth Simmons

A special reception was held at the Faculty Club yesterday to welcome UC San Diego’s new Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Elizabeth Simmons.  Chancellor Khosla noted she brings a wealth of great leadership and administrative experience to our campus—ranging from curriculum development and assessment, to academic advising and student and faculty recruitment and retention—in addition to being a widely respected and highly distinguished physicist.  She also has a strong track record of enhancing and promoting diversity.  Learn more about EVC Simmons.

Dining in the Library

Interim University Librarian Tammy Dearie, Author Ann Patchett, Chancellor Khosla

UC San Diego’s Dinner in the Library, held last Friday, is an annual tradition that transforms the first floor of Geisel Library into an elegant dining area amidst book collections and study spaces.  The theme for this year’s fundraising event was “Going to the Top,” reflecting the Library’s goal of holding next year’s event on the 8th floor of the Library, which is currently undergoing renovation to create event space and an enhanced quiet lounge for study.  The Geisel Library Revitalization Initiative is also transforming the first and second floors to better support student learning and research.  During the dinner, Chancellor Khosla thanked all of our generous supporters and emphasized the vital role of the Library in supporting UC San Diego’s mission of education, research and service.

Sharing UC San Diego’s Transformation

UC San Diego is connecting with alumni and friends across California and the United States through regional celebrations for the Campaign for UC San Diego.  The events allow our supporters to experience how our nonconventional approach empowers our campus community to make a difference.  From interactive virtual reality displays to renderings of our future campus, participants can see how our campus is transforming physically and intellectually.  The first event was held last weekend in Los Angeles and the next one will be this weekend in the Bay Area.  In October, UC San Diego will take the show on the road to Washington, DC and New York City.
