More than 200 University of California leaders, advocates and supporters, including Chancellor Khosla, gathered in Sacramento today for UC Day. The goal of the biennial event is to engage legislators in a conversation about UC’s public service contributions to California and to ask for their continued support of the university and our students. The Chancellor also attended a special welcome reception for Triton alumni and friends in the Sacramento area.

Students manning the phones for UC San Diego’s Telephone Outreach Program (TOP) received a surprise visit from Chancellor Khosla. He stopped by to thank the 40 students at the call center for engaging with alumni and raising philanthropic support for the campus. He also shared his goals of improving the student experience, enhancing diversity and increasing scholarship support at UC San Diego. This year, student callers will spend more than 10,000 hours connecting with nearly 70,000 members of the Triton community through TOP.
Chancellor Khosla recently visited Reality Changers, a nonprofit group founded by UC San Diego alumnus Chris Yanov that helps disadvantaged youth attend college. Khosla talked with the students about the importance of community engagement and service, and encouraged them to purse a higher education and find their passion in life. During his visit, Yanov presented Khosla with a giant-sized $1 million check to symbolize the investment of Reality Changers in supporting students at UC San Diego through scholarships and a summer immersion program.
