Last week, UC San Diego received approval on two important initiatives at the spring meeting of the UC Board of Regents, the governing board of the University of California.
Recognizing that our current six colleges have exceeded their designed capacity, the Academic and Student Affairs Committee approved a motion to establish a new Seventh College at UC San Diego. The committee approval is a watershed step in the process to gain approval for the new college. Next up, on June 4, the Academic Senate will vote on the Academic Plan. Our goal is to open Seventh College in the fall of 2020.
