Message from the Chair

Linda Masters

I love UC San Diego. There is so much life here, so much which is inspiring and invigorating. I am honored to be the chair of Chancellor's Associates, and to work with our wonderful members, committed staff and distinguished faculty in growing this magnificent program.

I know that life is fast-paced and full, but we all want a group of friends who share our interests and passions, as well as a place where we can continue learning with experts. And isn't that precisely what Chancellor's Associates offers us? This is a unique opportunity to engage with leaders, researchers and students who will build the bright future of tomorrow. The mission of UC San Diego is to transform California and a diverse global society by educating; generating and disseminating knowledge, creative works and cures; and engaging in public service. I think the purpose of Chancellor's Associates is to provide infrastructure for that mission – a network of alumni and friends who can step forward and say, this is something I can help with.

I look forward to meeting you, and I encourage you to contact me with any suggestions you have, especially your ideas on building Chancellor's Associates membership. We are very important to UC San Diego, Chancellor Khosla and one another as well as, ultimately, to our region.

Linda Masters
