Sharing the Holiday Spirit

Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla served as a guest of honor at a holiday reception for Margaret Leinen, UC San Diego's new Vice Chancellor for Marine Sciences and Director of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and a small group of San Diego business leaders, colleagues, and local legislators. The evening event, hosted by Jeffrey and Marcy Krinsk, who established the Krinsk Research Advancement Initiative to raise support for resources crucial for early career faculty and students at Scripps Oceanography, announced a gift of $100,000 for 20 graduate student stipends. Chancellor Khosla invited the community to continue its unwavering support of the university and its long-standing excellence in ocean and earth science. Vice Chancellor Leinen addressed the group and reinforced the value of UC San Diego for its collaborative nature and outstanding education and research capabilities.
