Recognizing the Achievements of Our Student Scholars

More than 100 Chancellor’s Associate Scholars are graduating this year – the largest class of scholars since the creation of the scholarship in 2013.  Chancellor Khosla attended a special lunch for the graduates at The Loft this week, where he awarded recognition medals and expressed his pride in their hard work and commitment to their educational goals.  The Chancellor established the scholarship program to ensure that UC San Diego is accessible and affordable for local and high-achieving students, particularly those from low-income families in underrepresented communities.  During his remarks, Chancellor Khosla urged the graduating class of scholars to use their education to improve our community and world, and reminded them that UC San Diego will always be their home.  

Celebrating UC San Diego’s Newest Physicians

Congratulations to the new graduates of UC San Diego’s School of Medicine.  The school’s commencement ceremony was held on Sunday.  Chancellor Khosla gave the opening remarks before conferring degrees, praising the graduates for their dedication to reach their academic goals by spending countless hours learning and practicing their skills.  He commended their commitment to service, as this class volunteered at the UC San Diego Student-Run Free Clinic Project, and participated in numerous health fairs and community outreach programs.  The Chancellor encouraged the new doctors to continue to use their education to raise the standard and improve access to healthcare, discover innovative cures and treatments, and positively transform and save the lives of people in our community and around the world.
