Ensuring Teacher and Student Success

Chancellor Khosla with local educators and UC San Diego CREATE Director Mica Pollock and Associate Director Susan Yonezawa

Chancellor Khosla today addressed more than 200 local high school and college educators at the San Diego Math Network Symposium at Kearny High School.  Funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation through a grant received by UC San Diego’s CREATE and our partner districts, the program’s goal is to network the region’s educators together to collaboratively tackle tough issues facing mathematics education.  The Chancellor expressed UC San Diego’s support in preparing our young students for college and careers, and talked about the importance of programs like CREATE and the San Diego Math Network that unite experts from across our region to solve local and educational challenges.

Collecting Supplies for Local Schools

“The school supply drive is a true community effort and a prime example of UC San Diego’s mission of service.” – Chancellor Khosla

The 11th annual UC San Diego School Supply Drive is officially underway.  Organizers are collecting school supplies to distribute to 16 classrooms in underserved schools across San Diego County.  Collection boxes are located all over campus, including one in the Chancellor’s office.  Staff, faculty and students are encouraged to donate new school supplies, backpacks, lunch boxes, gently used binders and children’s books.  University materials will not be accepted.  The drive runs through September 15.

Thanking Our Triton Staff

“Thank you to all of our staff who help make UC San Diego a world-class university.” – Chancellor Khosla

UC San Diego’s staff members play a vital role in the university’s ability to achieve our mission, and the All Staff Picnic is an annual tradition to recognize the hard work and contributions of staff.  Thousands of staff from across campus gathered in Town Square last Friday to free food, live music, dancing and games at the numerous Staff Association booths.  Chancellor Khosla stopped by to personally thank staff members for everything they do to make UC San Diego a world-class university.  The annual picnic is sponsored by the UC San Diego Staff Association and supported by the offices of the Chancellor, Executive Vice Chancellor and all of the Vice Chancellors.
