San Diego Promise


The San Diego Promise is a sustained commitment to make a positive impact in our local schools and show our local educational community how much UC San Diego cares. The campaign will feature opportunities to celebrate alumni educators, as well as a variety of service opportunities for you, members of the Triton Family, to share your unique talents and expertise at our local schools. Make a difference and get involved today!

We have a number of upcoming, exciting initiatives for alumni to give back to San Diego schools and celebrate alumni teachers. We thank you in advance for your involvement and for supporting our efforts in promoting UC San Diego and the pursuit of higher education to thousands of San Diego K-12 students.

Participate Today!

Let’s hear it for our alumni educators!

Create a school team for the Triton 5K

We invite you to join the UC San Diego community in the 22nd annual Triton 5K and Festival. Participants may run or walk a 3.1 mile through the heart of the UC San Diego campus.

The race will feature entertainment, special discounts for active military and veterans, and an enhanced Junior Triton Run and play zone for children 12 and under. We would love your help in encouraging teachers and students at your school to form a team and join in on the fun!

Nominate an Outstanding Teacher!

Nominations for outstanding Triton Teachers are open all year round, so if you know an especially impactful, caring, alumni teacher, please consider nominating them today. In celebration of Teacher Appreciation Month in May, we will thank our local educators for the role they have in shaping our future scholars, citizens and leaders. The next selection period will be in May 2017. Nominate today!

We are looking for educators to share events/programs that require volunteers. Whether you have a service opportunity or are interested in participating, contact alumnivolunteer@ucsd.edu.
