UC San Diego’s Founders Celebration is well underway.  Founders Symposium was held tonight, featuring six extraordinary faculty members who shared their impactful and collaborative research in TEDx-style talks.  Undergraduate student innovation and service were also showcased at a pre-reception. This year’s symposium focused on two of the research themes identified through UC San Diego’s Strategic Plan—understanding cultures and addressing disparities in society, and exploring the basis of human knowledge, learning and creativity.  You can still join the Founders fun, including the Founders Day presentation of the Revelle Medals and the Founders Day Festival.  Click here to learn about the events.
