All Campus Commencement 2017

Approximately 25,000 graduates and family members attended UC San Diego’s 2017 All Campus Commencement.  His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama delivered the keynote speech and received the UC San Diego Medal from Chancellor Khosla.  In his welcome remarks, Chancellor Khosla said His Holiness’s message of compassion inspires us to be better caretakers of the world and better caretakers of each other, and he expressed his pride in our graduates’ achievements.  He also urged our graduates to make a positive impact on our world, as only Tritons can.  His Holiness told our graduates that they are the future of humanity, and it’s up to them to create a better and happier world.  Watch the All Campus Commencement ceremony.
