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.
Chancellor Khosla served as the keynote speaker at the Caledonian Society Honors Banquet at UC San Diego's John Muir College. Members of the Society are seniors with grade point averages of 3.8 or higher. At the banquet, the Chancellor shared stories about successful alumni and let the seniors know that their UC San Diego education has prepared them for the future, whatever they chose to do.
“I hope you know that you can do anything you set your mind to, whether or not it’s in your field of study. The opportunities are open and endless. That is the beauty of a UC San Diego education.” - Chancellor Khosla
