UC President’s Award for Outstanding Student Leadership


I am humbled to receive the UC President’s Award for Outstanding Student Leadership for 2015.  This award would be impossible without the hard work of many, many other people involved with the Interdisciplinary Forum and the Blum Cross-Border Initiative.  As I told the Regents Meeting, I take this as recognition of the expanding need to both address social and ecological systems as linked and to look beyond traditional national borders when we think about our community.

Thank you to everyone, especially Sarah McCullough (Associate Director of UCSD Center for the Humanities) and Dick Norris (Professor, Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation, Scripps Institution of Oceanography).
