Leaders from the Warren College Student Council invited Chancellor Khosla to join their meeting last night, giving students the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the exciting developments occurring at UC San Diego. The Chancellor shared how the current transformation of our campus is going to enhance the student experience. As an example, he described how the university’s vision of creating a “Live-Learn-Play” community will come to life through the North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood (NTPLLN), the new home for Sixth College which will include student housing, class and lab space, and two new academic buildings – one for Arts and Humanities and one for Social Sciences. He emphasized that the university is committed to offering accessible and affordable student housing, as well as student-centered resources and opportunities to help students succeed, here at UC San Diego and in their careers.
Every year, UC San Diego hosts a daylong professional development event that provides female faculty with the opportunity to network and celebrate their significant contributions to our campus. The 6th annual UC San Diego Women Faculty Reception was held yesterday at the Price Center. At the event, Chancellor Khosla reaffirmed the university’s commitment to gender equality, opportunity and accessibility, and emphasized the indispensable role diversity plays in creating a vibrant academic environment. The event featured seminars, workshops and a keynote address, and was hosted by the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.

Chancellor Khosla recently attended the Department of Music’s Reed Family Concert at Mandeville Auditorium, which is part of the “It’s About Time” festival. Professor Steven Schick, who holds the Reed Family Presidential Chair in Music at UC San Diego, is curator of the festival. To celebrate this year’s 100th anniversary of the famous “Histoire du Soldat,” a Stravinsky classic, Schick asked Department of Literature alumnus and best-selling author Luis Alberto Urrea to replace the text with his Tijuana poems and bring the story of the border to life. At the performance, the Chancellor thanked UC San Diego champions Ann and Joel Reed for their support of the university and shared his pride in the stellar and groundbreaking work happening on campus, including the cutting-edge binational performance.
