Last week, Chancellor Khosla participated in a special flag-raising ceremony at the UC San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest—along with several dignitaries including California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom and City of San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer—which kicked off the lighting of the building in rainbow colors.  The medical center will be illuminated each night through the month of July and is the only hospital in the nation that lights up in rainbow colors.  The lights celebrate LGBT Pride Month and symbolize the university’s commitment and engagement in the LGBT community.
