Welcoming a Partner in Higher Education

The UC San Diego community, along with our university partners and friends, are welcoming San Diego State University’s new President – Adele de la Torre – to our region.  De la Torre is the ninth President, as well as the first female and Latina leader of the SDSU campus.  Chancellor Khosla hosted a welcome reception for De la Torre recently at Geisel University House.  People from all over the campus and community attended – leaders in academia and business, elected officials, members of the military, government representatives, and community members. 

During his welcome remarks, the Chancellor talked about his hopes for future collaborations and our shared goals – from educating and developing next-generation leaders, to improving academic success, to strengthening community partnerships, to conducting research that improves our planet and society.
