Touting Education as a Path to the Good Life

Education is key to the achieving the good life.  That was the crux of Chancellor Khosla’s presentation last night during “The Making of the Modern World” lecture series, focused this year on the good life.  The Chancellor was the sixth of seven speakers in the series, which was organized by Interim Vice Chancellor – Student Affairs Alan Houston and Professor Steve Cassedy.  The goal of the series is to have speakers from different disciplinary perspectives discuss the same theme.  Previous themes include what it means “To Be Human” and “To Be Musical.”  The entire “Good Life” series will air on UCSD-TV over the coming weeks.  Chancellor Khosla’s presentation, which covered the evolution of the modern research university and its mission, will be posted on the UCSD-TV website on March 21.
