Commemorating 30 Years at the Forefront of Service and Education

CARE at SARC is commemorating its 30th anniversary at UC San Diego and reaffirming its commitment to create a safe and respectful campus community.  At a special anniversary reception this week, Chancellor Khosla commended the center for its work and talked about how the center has been at the forefront of providing survivor support services and prevention education for campus sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking.  It was the first of its kind center in the University of California and has become a model for other universities.  Over the years, the center has expanded its staff and services, offering education, training and outreach that reaches about 20,000 people a year.

Tackling Environmental Challenges through Strategic Partnership

As a world leader in cutting-edge research, UC San Diego is bringing experts together across disciplines and industries to advance our Strategic Plan research goal of Understanding and Protecting the Planet.  A summit was held on campus today to increase dialogue with the community about our important environmental research and showcase the cross-disciplinary work already taking place on campus.  Chancellor Khosla welcomed the leaders in research, science, advocacy and policy, and encouraged attendees to network and collaborate to engineer solutions for our global society.  He also emphasized UC San Diego’s commitment to finding solutions for the pressing global challenges facing our society, including environmental concerns.

Stoking Student Leadership

The Associated Students Fellowship Program invited Chancellor Khosla to a recent meeting to share his leadership experience and provide advice to fellows as they take on leadership positions.  The program is for first-year students and promotes leadership experience through participation in AS offices, weekly workshops and event planning.  The Chancellor talked about his experience as a student, a professor and an administrator, and emphasized the importance of education in teaching students to think, collaborate and problem solve.  He encouraged the students to get involved in diverse activities and to take advantage of the many opportunities offered on campus to develop leadership skills.
