The UC San Diego alumni network is stronger now than ever before. This past June, we welcomed more than 8,000 graduates into the alumni community. Today, there are nearly 200,000 alumni worldwide. As your chancellor, I appreciate the tremendous impact our alumni have in the world. Your creativity and courage are an inspiration to our greater community and our current students.
Nothing makes us prouder than to see alumni thrive in their careers and life journeys. That is why I am working closely with the UC San Diego Alumni office and its board of directors to ensure that you have the resources needed for ongoing success. We have upgraded our career assistance resources with Handshake—an online portal exclusively for Tritons to support your professional development at any stage. You can view career opportunities and hire our remarkable graduates, register for career fairs or take part in career advising. As Tritons, you should know that even after you have left this campus, UC San Diego is here to support you and your professional success.
We are also establishing a way to take this university with you into the world with the rollout of Email for Life. All alumni of UC San Diego can now secure an @ucsd.edu email address to show your connection to your alma mater, and share in the stature and esteem of your top-ranking university for all time.
I encourage you to explore these offerings and the many perks of being UC San Diego alumni at alumni.ucsd.edu. Together, we can continue to strengthen the Triton network for generations to come.
With kind regards,
Pradeep K. Khosla
