Applauding UC San Diego’s Student-Athletes

Chancellor Khosla hosts a special breakfast every year – the Breakfast of Champions – to celebrate and recognize student-athletes who have excelled in their sports.  At the annual breakfast this morning at Audrey Geisel University House, Chancellor Khosla congratulated the student-athletes on their achievements in sports and academics, as our athletes maintain comparable or higher GPAs than the general student body.  He also thanked the students and their coaches for contributing to our university’s Triton pride.

UC San Diego’s School of Medicine is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, as well as the faculty who have defined our health sciences and what we can achieve.  A special investiture ceremony was held recently for our health sciences faculty endowed chair holders.  Chancellor Khosla presented the faculty members with commemorative medals and thanked them for shaping a new era in healthcare and strengthening the power of academic medicine at UC San Diego. 

An endowed chair is the highest honor the university can bestow on our faculty members.  It represents an investment in our talent and our future, fueling our revolutionary pursuit to understand, treat, and eventually cure devastating diseases.  An endowed chair also enables us to recognize and advance faculty members’ passionate pursuit of groundbreaking innovation, life-changing care, and exceptional education of the next generation of medical professionals.
