Strengthening Cross-Border Innovation

Chancellor Khosla joined leaders of universities and high schools in Baja California last week to sign 10 new Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) and create the CaliBaja Education Consortium.  Welcoming members of each institution to the Cross-Border Innovation Summit at UC San Diego, the Chancellor spoke about how cooperation—not isolation—enables our institutions and nations to be at their best.  These new MOUs build on the collaboration and momentum from three existing MOUs with Mexican universities.  They also strengthen the interconnectedness of our region by increasing opportunities for students, advancing our collective research efforts, and deepening our collaborative relationships.

Recognizing Community Leaders for Their Support

The Chancellor’s Community Advisory Board gathered for its annual spring meeting at Audrey Geisel University House yesterday.  Chancellor Khosla recognized the dedication and contributions of the board members throughout the year—from local and state advocacy efforts to helping the university recruit bright, motivated students from underrepresented communities.  He then honored the outgoing board members, who have each served six-year terms. The Chancellor’s Community Advisory Board advocates for UC San Diego and advises the Chancellor, with specific emphasis on the university’s role in the community.
