Touting UC San Diego’s Positive Impact

Chancellor Khosla met with The San Diego Union Tribune Editorial Board this week to discuss issues in higher education—from student and faculty recruitment and cutting-edge research to the university’s positive impact on our region.  Tomorrow, the Chancellor will give a presentation on UC San Diego’s community outreach and impact to the University of California Board of Regents Public Engagement & Development Committee.  He will also seek the Regents endorsement for the Campaign for UC San Diego.  Watch the meeting live beginning at 1 p.m. on March 15.  

During the Editorial Board discussion, the Chancellor talked about the launch of the public phase of the Campaign for UC San Diego next week, and why the fundraising initiative is important for the transformation of our campus and our greater community.

Over the last four years, Chancellor Khosla has increased engagement with—and strengthened the role of—UC San Diego’s advisory boards.  This has led to expanded visibility and advocacy efforts.  Just this week, several members of the Chancellor’s Community Advisory Board were in Sacramento for University of California Day at the State Capitol.  Taking place every other year, UC Day offers the opportunity for campus advocates to meet with state representatives to underscore the importance of higher education.  This week’s meetings focused on state funding for student growth.  The alumni and community advocates provided their unique perspectives on the positive impact of UC graduates on the California workforce.
