Message from the Director

Jen Stanley

Dear Parents and Families,

Welcome! We are pleased to have you as a part of our Triton family!

We are honored that you have chosen UC San Diego for your son, daughter, or family member. Our students are among the best and the brightest in the world. In the classroom, they learn from award-winning faculty who are experts in their fields. Outside of the classroom, students develop leadership skills through a variety of organizations, campus initiatives, and community engagement opportunities. In addition to more than 600 clubs on campus, students have access to career development workshops, cultural activities, public speakers, and campus-wide events. Our goal is to ensure every student has the opportunity to enhance their experience during their time here at UC San Diego.

We invite you to deepen your commitment to the university through your philanthropy. Your support ensures all students have access to the transformational resources they need to be successful, fostering a balance of academics, personal growth opportunities, and extracurricular activities. Annual giving encourages parents and families to give across campus in support of your passion. Whether you give to the Parents Fund, a College Innovation Fund, an academic unit, athletics, or an area on campus of your choice, every annual gift is meaningful, and every gift will impact the student experience.

Your student’s undergraduate career will go by quickly, but the knowledge, skills and experience he or she develops at UC San Diego will last a lifetime. We hope that every family will add philanthropy to its family traditions.

If you have any questions about getting involved—whether through volunteering, leadership roles or philanthropy—please contact us at (858) 822-3867 or
