It was standing room only at the beginning of the first town hall meeting to discuss the strategic planning initiative recently initiated by Chancellor Khosla. Dozens of chairs had to be added to accommodate the crowd of about 250 people. Khosla began the brainstorming session with a presentation about the planning process, and then sought input from the audience. The goal of the strategic planning initiative is to develop shared goals and a unifying vision for the future of UC San Diego. The next town hall is on Dec. 10.
“Our past 50 years were spectacular, so we’ve obviously been doing something right. We have to capture that momentum and build on it going forward. We have to be bold in terms of dreaming about who we want to be.”
The Black Storytellers of San Diego shared an oral history of the African American experience in the region and around the country.
Chancellor Khosla met with community members, business leaders, educators, students and local residents in Southeast San Diego to learn more about the rich culture and history of San Diego’s African American community. While touring the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation and the Elementary Institute of Science, Khosla emphasized the importance of improving UC San Diego’s diversity and strengthening the campus’s connection to the community. “I want our campus to be a more inclusive and welcoming place where every one of your kids and your neighbors’ kids can imagine themselves belonging and succeeding at UC San Diego.”
Six dynamic faculty members from diverse disciplines showcased their world-changing research happening on the UC San Diego campus at the annual Founders’ Symposium on Nov. 16. Chancellor Khosla addressed the crowd before the talks: “This evening is about the core of UC San Diego—our intellectual brain trust.” For information about the symposium topics, which ranged from economics, education and drug delivery to the transition of print to digital literacy, click here.
