Two UC San Diego provosts are retiring this year – Susan Smith from John Muir College and Don Wayne from Roger Revelle College.  Chancellor Khosla attended each of their farewell receptions and presented them with commendations for their decades of service at UC San Diego.

Thousands of UC San Diego alumni and their loved ones gathered on campus for a memorable weekend of reunions, celebratory events and family fun.  This year’s Alumni Weekend festivities were expanded, including the Triton 5k race which raises money for student scholarships.  In addition to having a re-designed route through campus, the event included a health fair, a children’s zone and live music.  After giving a few words of encouragement at the starting line, Chancellor Khosla sounded the air horn to begin the race.  Other Alumni Weekend activities included the Taste of UC San Diego, Family Night at Birch Aquarium and the Alumni Celebration dinner.

And they're off.

Alumni Gift Propels UC San Diego’s Computer Science and Engineering into New Era

“This visionary gift is truly a game changer for the computer science and engineering department, the Jacobs School and UC San Diego.” – Chancellor Khosla

UC San Diego has received a transformational $18.5 million gift, the largest gift ever from one of our alumni.  The donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, designated the gift for our Department of Computer Science and Engineering.  The resources will take the department to the next level by providing students with top-of-the-line teaching labs and by funding new faculty endowed chairs to help with the recruitment of innovative faculty.  Mentoring and tutoring programs will also be expanded to educate the next generation of undergraduates.  To read more about the far-reaching impact of this gift, click here.
