Ensuring the Continued Leadership of Public Research Universities

UC San Diego is hosting a regional meeting on campus today to discuss 10 key findings from a recent National Research Council report.  The recommendations address how we can ensure that our research universities continue to provide the talent and innovation critical to our nation’s economic development, knowledge advancement and national security.  Chancellor Khosla welcomed the attendees and panelists this morning, including leaders in business and higher education.  They will examine the opportunities and challenges in implementing the recommendations.  The NRC is gathering feedback from regional meetings across the country.

Prestigious Honor Society Initiates New Members

The nation’s most prestigious undergraduate honor society, Phi Beta Kappa, initiated a new group of members last night at UC San Diego.  The Sigma Chapter inductees were invited into the society because of the excellence of their academic record, the breadth and quality of their courses taken, and their good character.  Each initiated student was presented with a special ribbon insignia to wear at commencement.  Chancellor Khosla stopped by the ceremony to congratulate the new members.  He was also surprised at the event when he was told that he’d been made an honorary member.
