Six new community leaders are joining UC San Diego’s Chancellor’s Community Advisory Board (CCAB) this fall.  At this morning’s CCAB orientation, Chancellor Khosla welcomed the new members and emphasized UC San Diego’s commitment to foster and strengthen positive relationships between our campus and our community.  CCAB is composed of talented, experienced and motivated citizens of San Diego who are advocates for UC San Diego.  Board members advise the Chancellor on the university’s role in the community, and support the formulation and execution of advocacy plans and programs related to increasing the community’s understanding of the positive impact UC San Diego has on the region’s development and progress.

Surfing for a Cure

The 24th annual Luau & Legends of Surfing Invitational was held recently to benefit the Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health.  Dozens of surfers participated in the tournament and more than 500 people enjoyed traditional Polynesian dancing, music and a tropical buffet.  Among the attendees was surfing world champion Kelly Slater, who also served as Honorary Chair.  This year’s Rell Sunn Award was presented to John Mendelsohn, founding director of the UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center.  Since its inception, the event has raised over $8 million for cancer research and care.  

Lunching with the Chancellor

Chancellor Khosla hosted 10 staff members for lunch in his office yesterday as part of the annual Chancellor’s Lunchbox Club.  The staff were invited after having their names chosen from a drawing at the All Staff Picnic.  The Chancellor says this is one of his favorite campus traditions because it gives him an opportunity to converse with staff members from diverse areas across campus in a casual setting and he can personally thank staff for the work that they do to support the university.

This year’s lunchbox design was created by Dave Decaro, Director of Marketing for Housing, Dining and Hospitality, who continued the nontradition at UC San Diego with the unique artwork.  Each lunch guest got to take home their commemorative lunchbox.
