Letter from the Chancellor: Building Our Future

This has been a banner year for UC San Diego, and that’s saying a lot since we are a community of overachievers. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our campus members for another amazing year—from welcoming our most diverse class of students to celebrating the graduation of more than 9,000 new alumni—and all of the successes we’ve had in between. Among our grandest achievements, together we launched an ambitious fundraising initiative and embarked on the physical and intellectual transformation of our campus.  Read the entire letter.

Seeking Applicants for New Chancellor’s Guild Program

Chancellor Khosla is creating a new program—The Chancellor’s Guild—to offer students the unique chance to represent UC San Diego at campus events, including those held at Audrey Geisel University House.  Applications for next year are being accepted now through Friday, June 23.  Students will be selected based on academic standing (3.0 minimum GPA), ability to communicate their knowledge of and pride in UC San Diego, proven leadership skills, and willingness to work together to advance our campus.  Chancellor’s Guild ambassadors will have opportunities to network with current and prospective students, alumni and donors, while also broadening their UC San Diego experience.  Students passionate about representing UC San Diego are invited to apply today.

Providing Opportunities for Transfer Scholars

Chancellor Khosla is dedicated to broadening the path to college, especially for students from underserved communities.  That is why he created the Chancellor’s Associates Scholarship.  This year, the scholarship was offered to more than 330 students, including 90 transfer students.  Last week, a special congratulatory reception was held for our transfer scholars at the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation in Southeast San Diego.  Vice Chancellor Juan Gonzalez opened the evening by congratulating the students on their admission to UC San Diego and applauding their hard work and dedication.  He then awarded each scholar with a blue and gold honor cord, signifying our pledge to help them throughout their academic career.

Established in 2013, the Chancellor’s Associates Scholarship supports local and high-achieving students from underrepresented communities with financial need.  To date, more than 400 students have received the scholarship.
