Dear University Friends,
I am proud of UC San Diego’s spirit and tradition of public service. Our students, staff, faculty and alumni demonstrate a strong commitment to giving back to our community and world through education, research, patient care and volunteer projects. It is this type of dedication to service that’s led UC San Diego to be recognized by the Washington Monthly for four consecutive years as the nation’s top ‘socially conscious’ college.
In the 2013-2014 academic year, I challenge you to join UC San Diego’s Volunteer50 program and set a goal to contribute 50 hours of service. Every day, Tritons like you are making a difference – locally, nationally and globally. I thank you for all that you do to help our university and community, and support our mission to be a student-centered, research-focused, service-oriented public university.
With kind regards,
Pradeep K. Khosla
