Recognizing Outstanding Student Leadership

Student Foundation Trustee Rohan Bhargava, UC San Diego Foundation Trustee and alumna Wendy Kwok, Student Foundation Trustee Sara Tan and UC President Janet Napolitano

Congratulations to the UC San Diego Student Foundation for receiving the University of California President's Award for Outstanding Student Leadership. The UC San Diego Student Foundation is being recognized for addressing food insecurity on campus by raising funds for the student-run Triton Food Pantry, which helps ensure every student on campus has access to nutritious food.  The organization raised more than $2,000, in addition to stocking the pantry with dry goods to last five months.  The Student Foundation also raises money for scholarships and other student needs.  The award is presented each spring to students and campus-based organizations that enhance multi-campus collaboration, address system-wide issues and advance UC’s mission of teaching, research and public service.
