Broadening the Path to Higher Education

UC San Diego continues to expand the Chancellor’s Associates Scholarship Program, so even more local and high-achieving students can attend our world-class university.  This year, 265 incoming freshmen received the scholarship and the university added two new partner schools to the program – Hoover High School and E3 Civic High School.  UC San Diego’s newest scholars were honored at a reception last week at the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation in Southeast San Diego.  Hundreds of students and their family members attended, along with Chancellor’s Associates donors, current scholars, UC San Diego faculty and staff, and leaders from our partner schools and organizations.  Chancellor Khosla congratulated all of the new scholars and awarded them with a blue and gold Triton honor cord, signifying the university’s pledge to help them throughout their academic career. 

The Chancellor created the scholarship and program in 2013 to support talented local students with great potential, financial need and the motivation to academically succeed at UC San Diego.  To date, more than 615 students have received the Chancellor’s Associate Scholarship.

Hundreds of thought leaders, including Chancellor Khosla, gathered in Los Angeles this week for the Milken Institute Global Conference.  The goal of the conference is to bring together individuals with the knowledge and resources to effect real change.  The Chancellor participated in the “Building Tomorrow’s Workforce Today” panel, which discussed the workforce and educational opportunities that are needed to better equip workers for future jobs.  He shared several of UC San Diego’s efforts and initiatives – from training next-generation leaders and offering cutting-edge degree programs, to creating new multi-disciplinary research centers at UC San Diego that tackle our world’s most pressing global challenges.

The newly opened Koman Family Outpatient Pavilion is already meeting the growing healthcare needs of our community.  The facility – which opened on March 12 – provides single-day treatments for imaging, physical therapy and pain management, among other services.  At the official building dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony earlier this week, Chancellor Khosla thanked Bill and Amy Koman for their commitment to advancing healthcare, and for their generosity and support of UC San Diego.  He also talked about how the new Koman Family Outpatient Pavilion complements UC San Diego’s existing Health Sciences services and how the new multi-disciplinary center will improve the patient experience through increased efficiency.
