Celebrating Our Triton Champions

Dozens of Triton student-athletes and their coaches enjoyed breakfast last week at Audrey Geisel University House.  The annual Breakfast of Champions event recognizes athletes and coaches who gained national championship status in their sport.  Chancellor Khosla personally congratulated the champions as they arrived, and then talked during the breakfast about the importance of athletics at UC San Diego and how they contribute to Triton pride.

Showing Support for Energy Innovation

Chancellor Khosla is in Washington, D.C. today as “An Assessment of ARPA-E” is presented to Congress.  The report—created by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine—underscores the importance of the work conducted by the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy.  Chancellor Khosla served as chair of the review committee for the report.  You can read about the report in The New York Times and The Washington Post.

Strengthening Cross-Border Innovation

Chancellor Khosla joined leaders of universities and high schools in Baja California last week to sign 10 new Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) and create the CaliBaja Education Consortium.  Welcoming members of each institution to the Cross-Border Innovation Summit at UC San Diego, the Chancellor spoke about how cooperation—not isolation—enables our institutions and nations to be at their best.  These new MOUs build on the collaboration and momentum from three existing MOUs with Mexican universities.  They also strengthen the interconnectedness of our region by increasing opportunities for students, advancing our collective research efforts, and deepening our collaborative relationships.
