ALL STUDENTS, ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UC SAN DIEGO (Including UC San Diego Health)
Celebrating UC San Diego's 60th Birthday
From the birth of our experimental campus in 1960, we committed to exploration and discovery outside the norm. We brought together explorers, changemakers, and brilliant artistic minds and encouraged collaboration to solve societal challenges and drive progress. In a year like no other, UC San Diego’s academic and healthcare communities continued to demonstrate the pioneering and innovative Triton spirit that has propelled this university and academic medical center faster and further than any other in the world.
This year was no exception. We continued to shine despite the challenges we faced together. Our hospital was the first in San Diego to treat COVID-19. Our researchers immediately dove into understanding how to stop its transmission and how to treat it. And we were the first university in the nation to announce plans to bring students and researchers back to campus.
I am pleased to kick off our 60th Anniversary Year. UC San Diego has been “ahead of tomorrow” for 60 years now, and I don’t see that changing any time soon. I hope you will join me throughout the year in celebrating UC San Diego’s 60th birthday.
