At a special book signing and speaking engagement on May 6, businessman and author Robert Price shared his personal reflections about his father, Sol Price, for whom our UC San Diego Price Center is named.  His new book is titled “Sol Price: Retail Revolutionary and Social Innovator.”  More than 200 people packed the J.R. Beyster Auditorium at UC San Diego’s Rady School of Management to hear Robert Price share stories about the business success, personal life and lessons learned from his father, who founded the highly successful Price Clubs.  Before introducing Robert Price at the event, Chancellor Khosla thanked the Price family for the impact they’ve had on our campus.  He also told the crowd that UC San Diego is a student-centered university, and that those two words are synonymous with our Price Center.

UC San Diego Powwow Honors Native American Culture and History

The third annual Powwow on the UC San Diego campus drew a crowd of hundreds over the weekend.  Community members, students, staff and faculty celebrated Native American culture through a two-day festival of dance, song, food, and arts and crafts.  Chancellor Khosla stopped by on Saturday to enjoy the festivities and speak with the event’s participants.  This year’s Powwow was held on Warren Field this year to provide more space and parking for the growing campus tradition.

“This annual tradition gives our campus members the opportunity to learn more about the rich culture and history of Native Americans, and strengthens the ties between UC San Diego and our tribal communities.” - Chancellor Khosla
