UC San Diego responded to the COVID-19 pandemic with a level of innovation, compassion and collaboration that are unique to our university. We knew that our approach had to be as flexible, adaptive and multilayered as the pandemic was unprecedented. With this knowledge, our transformative Return to Learn program was born.
Last week, the American Council on Education (ACE) recognized our successful program with its 2021 ACE/Fidelity Investments Award for Institutional Transformation. The award recognizes the evolution of institutions that have responded to higher education challenges in innovative and creative ways that allow the institution to thrive.
