"Today’s public university instills the importance of social responsibility, and I think Gandhi would be pleased with our mission, work and achievements." - Chancellor Khosla
Chancellor Khosla delivered the 32nd annual Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Lecture at Atkinson Hall on Friday. He talked about Gandhi’s life and principles, and how they shaped his views on education, as well as why Gandhi would most likely support the mission of the modern-day public university. During the program, the Chancellor also helped award 21 scholarships from the San Diego Indian American Society to local high school students who wrote an original essay on “nonviolent means for conflict resolution” and demonstrated academic excellence and community involvement.
