Pradeep Khosla


UC San Diego

As UC San Diego’s chief executive officer, Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla provides vision and strategy, leading a campus of more than 40,000 students within seven undergraduate colleges and 12 academic divisions and schools; a preeminent health system; and the prestigious Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Khosla initiated and led UC San Diego’s first-ever Strategic Plan and the ambitious 10-year, $2 billion Campaign for UC San Diego. The Campaign raised $3.05 billion, exceeding its original goal by more than $1 billion, and making UC San Diego the youngest institution ever to complete a multi-billion-dollar fundraising campaign. The campus is currently undergoing a $2 billion construction boom to expand classrooms, research space and double the number of on-campus housing units. Under Chancellor Khosla’s leadership, UC San Diego has expanded college access and affordability for underserved students, initiated campus-wide interdisciplinary research initiatives to foster collaboration and solve societal challenges, and strengthened university and community partnerships to drive regional impact.
