Sharing Words of Wisdom with High School Graduates

Find your passion.  Take risks.  Don’t be afraid of failure.  These are just a few words of advice that Chancellor Khosla shared as the keynote speaker at the Gompers Preparatory Academy graduation.  After commending all of the graduates on their hard work and dedication to their studies, he called out the six graduates who will attend UC San Diego in the fall.  The Chancellor officially welcomed them into the Triton family and congratulated them on being in our first class of Chancellor’s Associates Scholars.  The new scholarship program was developed this year for eligible students from our three local partner schools – Gompers, Lincoln High School and The Preuss School UCSD.

Fostering Communication with the Community

"One of our roles at UC San Diego is to be connected to our broader community and I want to strengthen those relationships." - Chancellor Khosla

Chancellor Khosla with members of UC San Diego’s Circle K International

Chancellor Khosla stopped by a recent La Jolla Kiwanis Club meeting to give an update on UC San Diego’s strategic planning process and other campus news.  The Kiwanis Club of La Jolla raises over $100,000 a year to be used specifically to address the needs of children in our wider community.  Several members of UC San Diego’s Circle K International, the largest community service organization on campus, attended the lunch and received a $4,000 check from the La Jolla Kiwanis.

Recognizing the Generosity of Our Campus Supporters

Chancellor Khosla often says that the greatest gift a person can give is the gift of education and opportunity.  Last night, at a special recognition dinner at Birch Aquarium, he thanked some of the university’s most generous supporters – our Chancellor’s Associates –for their gifts that have tremendously benefitted our students and faculty, and our campus in general.  Gifts from Chancellor’s Associates provide a pool of flexible funds that allow the Chancellor to act quickly on important campus priorities and opportunities.  This year, the Chancellor established the Chancellor’s Associates Scholars program for eligible students at UC San Diego’s three partner schools.  The first class of scholarship recipients from The Preuss School UCSD attended the dinner.
