Recognizing Our Exceptional Faculty

“An outstanding faculty is the hallmark of any great university.” – Chancellor Khosla

Every year, UC San Diego recognizes new faculty and those who’ve achieved career milestones at a special gathering hosted by the Chancellor and the Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.  This year, more than 130 faculty attended the reception at Geisel University House.  Chancellor Khosla and EVC Elizabeth Simmons welcomed and congratulated the faculty, and emphasized UC San Diego’s tradition of hiring the world’s best scholars.  The Chancellor also talked about physical and intellectual transformation of our campus that is enhancing the student experience, creating a living and learning infrastructure, and sparking research and innovation.

Nearly 600 staff members are celebrating a milestone anniversary at UC San Diego this year, and they were honored yesterday at the 50th annual Service Awards Ceremony.  Chancellor Khosla expressed his appreciation to all of the hardworking staff members for their dedication to the campus and their contributions to the university community.  He also pointed out that the combined service of this year’s honorees totals nearly 19.5 million working hours, or 9,355 years if worked by one person. 

Designing Our Future

UC San Diego’s Design Lab is focused on people-centered design as a way of thinking and embraces a three-pronged approach to design: research, education and community integration.  That is why the Design Lab created Design Forward, a flagship community movement to collaboratively address societal challenges through multi-disciplinary design.  The second annual Design Forward Summit was recently held at Liberty Station to ignite conversation and action around how design can improve the way we live, work and play.  At the event, Chancellor Khosla talked about the valuable role of design in bringing together top scholars across disciplines to work alongside civic, industry and community partners to ensure socially responsible, economically viable and forward-thinking impact.
