Researchers from UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography recently displayed their pioneering studies at the Scripps Science Showcase.  Chancellor Khosla stopped by to meet the researchers, learn more about their work, and show his support for the faculty and staff who are tackling our world’s most pressing challenges.  Attendees included members of the Scripps Director’s Council, community leaders and university friends.  The Chancellor thanked participants for their ongoing support and provided an update about some of UC San Diego’s recent successes and future projects, including the arrival of the research vessel Sally Ride, the opening of the Jacobs Medical Center and the transformation of the campus.

Chancellor Khosla joined San Diego educators and community leaders over the weekend to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  As the guest speaker at the Alphi Phi Alpha Educator’s Breakfast at the Joe and Vi Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation, the Chancellor talked about the contributions and achievements of Dr. King, the parallels between the American civil rights leader and Ghandi, and how he is committed to continuing both leaders’ fight for justice and equality, including access to education.  The Chancellor shared examples of how UC San Diego is addressing disparities through the Chancellor’s Associates Scholarship and the Black Academic Excellence Initiative.

Making a Positive Impact on Our Community

“The school supply drive is a true community effort and a prime example of UC San Diego’s mission of service.” – Chancellor Khosla

Throughout the holiday season, notes from young students and their teachers across the county poured in to the Chancellor’s office to say thank you for the school supplies donated by the UC San Diego community.  The 10th annual School Supply Drive, which occurred in the fall, provided 21 local schools that critically needed supplies with up to six boxes of provisions and a large bag of clothes for students.  Thank you to all who donated and who uphold our mission of service.
