We Discover: Advancing Interdisciplinary Research through Organized Research Units and Partnerships

Members of UC San Diego’s organized research units showcased their work at a reception at the Faculty Club.  The event highlighted the collaborative units on campus and the partnerships our ORUs have with external organizations and industry.

“The most exciting thing is talking to people, hearing about their research, and what great results they have and the impact that’s being made.”

Our Plan for Progess: Developing a Shared Vision

Chancellor Khosla was the featured speaker at the Chancellor’s Associates Colloquium on Oct. 10.  He talked about his plan to work with campus and community members to develop a shared vision for UC San Diego’s future, and then answered questions from the audience.

“This is the time to look back at our 50 years and take pride in the fact that we’ve been extremely successful.  We can take stock of where we are today.  And we can ask ourselves where we want to be and what strategies we’re going to follow so that over the next 50 years, we can continue to have a positive impact on our community and world.”

We Learn: Celebrating Chicano/a & Latino/a Culture and Heritage

Students explain to Chancellor Khosla the history and significance of the Chicano Legacy Mural on campus.

Chancellor Khosla met with Chicano/a and Latino/a students, staff, faculty and community members on Saturday, Oct. 6, to learn more about their heritage and culture.

He started the day with members of the San Diego County Chicano/Latino Concilio on Higher Education and then visited the Chicano Legacy Mural on the UC San Diego campus, where students explained the history and significance of the artwork.  Khosla said, “I love this mural. Every time I walk by, I stop and look at it. And each time, I see something new. Now, I appreciate the depth of this piece even more.”  The group then traveled to Chicano Park in Barrio Logan to see the murals that inspired the artwork on the UC San Diego campus and attended a luncheon at Barrio Logan College Institute.  Click here to view a slideshow of the day’s events.

Campus and community members toured Chicano Park in Barrio Logan with Chancellor Khosla, showing him the inspiration for the Chicano Legacy Mural on campus.
