“You are our future leaders and innovators, and you represent the best of UC San Diego.” – Chancellor Khosla
UC San Diego is adding more than 8,000 new alumni to its already distinguished roster of graduates. Chancellor Khosla conferred the degrees over the weekend during nine separate commencement ceremonies. Addressing each group of graduates, the Chancellor told our graduates that they are well prepared to enter the world as both scholars and citizens who will carry on UC San Diego’s legacy of innovation, service and excellence. He also talked about how proud he is of their accomplishments, and urged our new alumni to use their education to make the world a better place.
To kick off the commencement weekend ceremonies, the All Campus Graduation Celebration kicked off was held on Friday night, featuring keynote speaker Danny Zuker, executive producer and writer for the television show “Modern Family.” Commencement ceremonies for the School of Medicine and Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences were held in the weeks prior.
