Alumni Build a Stronger UCSD

Since the launch of the campaign in July 2000, more than 21,000 alumni have shown an unwavering commitment to UCSD, contributing in excess of $12 million. In fact, an impressive thirty percent of the donors to The Campaign for UCSD: Imagine What’s Next are UCSD alumni. MORE

Jacobs School: Legacy Walk
The Jacobs School of Engineering’s Legacy Walk is a commemorative paver program that allows alumni, students, faculty, staff and community partners to show their support to the school while also providing funding for priority education and research initiatives.

Legacy Walk is located in the new engineering courtyard formed by the Powell-Focht Bioengineering Hall, the Computer Science and Engineering Building, and the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology. On September 30, the campus will dedicate the Computer Science and Engineering building, and unveil the newest sculpture in the Stuart Collection and the more than 400 pavers that have already been installed on Legacy Walk.

It’s not too late to show your support for the school. Pavers—which cost $300, $500, or $5,000 depending on size—are still for sale and will be installed every six months. To learn more about Legacy Walk, visit: www.jacobs school.ucsd.edu/LegacyWalk, call: (858) 534-2329 or email: kbriggs@ucsd.edu.

UCSD Near You
Plans are now under way for next year’s UCSD Near You tour. The program, which was launched in spring 2005, provides alumni, parents and friends across the country the opportunity to connect with and meet campus leaders and prominent faculty. For more information and future tour dates, visit: www.ucsdnearyou.ucsd.edu.

Recent Gifts
The Division of Arts and Humanities has benefited from the generosity of many community members who joined together to provide more than $1 million for two new endowed faculty chairs in Greek History.

The campus recently formed the Gerry and Jeannie Ranglas Endowed Chair in Ancient Greek History and the Alkiviadis Vassiliadis Endowed Chair in Byzantine History.

Gerry and Jeannie Ranglas and Carol Vassiliadis have each provided leadership gifts to make the two chairs possible. The campus hopes to soon complete funding for a third chair, which will focus on Modern Greek History.

If this goal is met, UCSD will become one of the first U.S. universities to have endowed faculty chairs in all three eras of Greek history. For more information, call (858) 822-6618.

The Next Chapter:

Through UCSD Chancellor’s Associates, you can be part of one of the Chancellor’s key groups of University affiliates while providing unrestricted funds that allow campus leaders to address emerging opportunities. Chancellor’s Associates contribute a minimum $1,500 per year, and young alumni can join for even less—just $500 per year for class years 2001–2005 and $1,000 per year for class years 1997–2000. For more information on the Chancellor’s Associates, visit: www.chancellorsassociates.ucsd.edu, email: ca@ucsd.edu, or call: (858) 534-7424.
