Chancellor Hosts Four More Town Hall Meetings

Attendees listen to comments at the Town Hall at Moores Cancer Center.

As part of UC San Diego’s comprehensive strategic planning process, Chancellor Khosla hosted four Town Hall meetings in three days.  Two of the meetings were held in the community – in Southeast San Diego and the Southbay – and two were held at the Moores Cancer Center and at Hillcrest Medical Center.  Attendees participated in brainstorming sessions to discuss how the campus can build on our successful track record of education, research, patient care and service, and continue to positively impact our community.  More information about the strategic plan can be found at plan.ucsd.edu.

“It’s important that we remember that diversity is not just a goal, it’s a journey.  It’s something we need to think about every day, and something we need to strive for in everything we do.” - Chancellor Khosla

Dozens of campus and community leaders gathered at the Institute of Americas to hear a presentation by Chancellor Khosla about UC San Diego’s economic impact.  He spoke about the role of research universities, like UC San Diego, in being agents of change and spurring economic growth through industry and job creation.  Khosla explained, "If you take the time to support the university, you are actually investing in the local economy, in the community and in making this a better place.”  The talk will air on UCSD-TV in the coming weeks.
