Endowed chairs are critical to UC San Diego’s research endeavors, as they allow the university to recruit and retain top scholars who are at the forefront of their fields.  This week, the Chancellor attended a reception at the Jacobs School of Engineering to celebrate the inaugural appointment of Ravi Ramamoorthi to the newly established Ronald L. Graham Endowed Chair of Computer Science & Engineering, named in honor of CSE Professor Emeritus Ron Graham.  The Chancellor recognized the important research and contributions of both professors – to our campus and to their field.  He also shared that increasing the number of endowed chairs at UC San Diego is an important priority in The Campaign for UC San Diego, which will enter the public phase next month.
