Chancellor Khosla with members of UC San Diego’s Circle K International

Chancellor Khosla stopped by a recent La Jolla Kiwanis Club meeting to give an update on UC San Diego’s strategic planning process and other campus news.  The Kiwanis Club of La Jolla raises over $100,000 a year to be used specifically to address the needs of children in our wider community.  Several members of UC San Diego’s Circle K International, the largest community service organization on campus, attended the lunch and received a $4,000 check from the La Jolla Kiwanis.

Recognizing the Generosity of Our Campus Supporters

Chancellor Khosla often says that the greatest gift a person can give is the gift of education and opportunity.  Last night, at a special recognition dinner at Birch Aquarium, he thanked some of the university’s most generous supporters – our Chancellor’s Associates –for their gifts that have tremendously benefitted our students and faculty, and our campus in general.  Gifts from Chancellor’s Associates provide a pool of flexible funds that allow the Chancellor to act quickly on important campus priorities and opportunities.  This year, the Chancellor established the Chancellor’s Associates Scholars program for eligible students at UC San Diego’s three partner schools.  The first class of scholarship recipients from The Preuss School UCSD attended the dinner.

Chancellor Talks about Innovation in Education at Bloomberg Summit

“Our economy would not be the way it is if it were not for the great American research university.” – Chancellor Khosla

Chancellor Khosla is participating in the Bloomberg Next Big Thing Summit, a two-day conference which brings together influential entrepreneurs and leaders in education, technology and science to look at how innovation is changing our future and the human experience.  The Chancellor was one of four panel members who discussed innovation in education and the classroom of the future.  He talked about the importance of educating students to think critically, so they can then acquire knowledge and solve problems holistically.  He also underscored the significant role research universities have played in shaping and fueling the U.S. economy by preparing our next generation leaders, propelling innovation, and building industries and companies.
