Recognizing Staff Excellence

“I am truly amazed at what these staff members have done. The work of these 10 award recipients, and the collective efforts of all staff at UC San Diego, are invaluable to our success as a university and community resource.” – Chancellor Khosla speaking at the award ceremony

At the annual Exemplary Staff Employees of the Year Award ceremony yesterday, Chancellor Khosla congratulated the 10 honorees and thanked them for their hard work and contributions to our campus and community.  This year’s award recipients were selected from 114 nominations, and they represent a broad range of campus areas – from youth education and outreach to marine biology research.  For more information on this year’s recipients, click here.

Leading the Way in Sustainability

“When I arrived on this campus, I was jaw-droppingly amazed at the number of sustainability projects here and the commitment of our campus members to our green initiatives.  We are coming up with innovative practices, implementing them and showing the world how it’s done.” – Chancellor Khosla speaking at the Sustainability Town Hall

Sustainability is an important part of who we are and what we do at UC San Diego, and it was the focus of a Town Hall meeting today.  The gathering was held as part of the unit- and department-level assessments associated with the campus-wide strategic planning process currently underway.  At the beginning of the session, Chancellor Khosla thanked the attendees for being a part of the discussion and helping to ensure a sustainable campus, now and well into the future.  The event organizers then talked about the accomplishments that led the campus to become one of the greenest in the nation and participants brainstormed new ways to maintain our leadership in sustainability.

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.
