“The school supply drive is a true community effort and a prime example of UC San Diego’s mission of service.” – Chancellor Khosla
The 11th annual UC San Diego School Supply Drive is officially underway. Organizers are collecting school supplies to distribute to 16 classrooms in underserved schools across San Diego County. Collection boxes are located all over campus, including one in the Chancellor’s office. Staff, faculty and students are encouraged to donate new school supplies, backpacks, lunch boxes, gently used binders and children’s books. University materials will not be accepted. The drive runs through September 15.
“Thank you to all of our staff who help make UC San Diego a world-class university.” – Chancellor Khosla
UC San Diego’s staff members play a vital role in the university’s ability to achieve our mission, and the All Staff Picnic is an annual tradition to recognize the hard work and contributions of staff. Thousands of staff from across campus gathered in Town Square last Friday to free food, live music, dancing and games at the numerous Staff Association booths. Chancellor Khosla stopped by to personally thank staff members for everything they do to make UC San Diego a world-class university. The annual picnic is sponsored by the UC San Diego Staff Association and supported by the offices of the Chancellor, Executive Vice Chancellor and all of the Vice Chancellors.
Chancellor Khosla and other UC San Diego representatives got a glimpse of the future in a tour of the Ocean Discovery Institute’s “Living Lab,” an immersive new facility that will engage thousands of students and their families in City Heights, one of the most ethnically diverse communities in the region.
In a lively discussion that included Shara Fisler, Ocean Discovery’s executive director, and Gentry Patrick, professor of neurobiology and director of mentorship and diversity for UC San Diego’s Division of Biological Sciences, Chancellor Khosla discussed UC San Diego’s expanding relationship with community enrichment groups such as Ocean Discovery and its mission to “transform young lives through science,” as well as the university’s ability to enhance and support such efforts. When completed in the fall, the San Diego Unified School District-funded Living Lab will expand Ocean Discovery from 6,000 to 10,000 underserved students and families.
