Recognizing Faculty Excellence

“UC San Diego was founded by recruiting the world’s top scholars and that is a tradition that continues today.” – Chancellor Khosla

Each year, the Academic Senate honors two of its members with the prestigious Academic Senate Faculty Research Lecturer Award, one from the Arts, Humanities or Social Sciences, and one from the Sciences or Engineering.  This year’s recipients are Professors Yen-Le Espiritu and Anita Raj.  Both gave their lectures this week, as part of the lead-up to UC San Diego’s Founders Celebration next week.  Chancellor Khosla talked about the importance of the Faculty Research Lectures to our Founders Celebration, as they honor exemplary faculty, and our campus was founded by recruiting the world’s top scholars.
