Chancellor Speaks at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

Chancellor Khosla was the featured speaker at a recent Osher Lifelong Learning Institute distinguished lecture at UC San Diego Extension.  The institute is an educational and cultural organization for retirees.  Over 50 people attended the Chancellor’s talk to learn more about the campus-wide strategic planning process that will define a unifying vision for UC San Diego’s future.  When talking about UC San Diego’s unique entrepreneurial spirit, he said: “We have the ability to take risks, to experiment, to try new things.  It’s in our institutional DNA. We act locally and impact globally.  The ripples of what we do are felt around the world.”
