Business Justification

The landscape of higher education has changed in the past three years. The methods of delivery, the cost, and the value proposition of higher education are all being redefined. Those who redefine it should rely upon a framework of tools, techniques and operating principles that represent best practices in quality and continuous improvement. Lean in Higher Education conference provides a forum for practitioners leveraging this framework to exchange ideas and collaboratively generate solutions to complex issues together. 

Attendees of the Lean HE conference will be able to:

  • Identify potential efficiency projects in a higher education institution
  • Describe efficiency projects from institutions around the world
  • Apply concepts of efficiency to projects impacting overall cost/efficiency
  • Illustrate concepts that improve team efficiency and/or work performance
  • Apply concepts of gauging customer and employee satisfaction
  • Identify potential projects for their home campuses

Health Protocols

UC San Diego continues to follow national, state, county, city, University of California and UC San Diego protocols.

UC San Diego’s Return to Learn program began in May 2020 as a strategic response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of the ongoing initiative is to continue in-person teaching, research and service in the safest way possible. Positive case rates on campus have remained consistently low compared to regional and national case rates. As a result, UC San Diego was able to resume full on-campus operations in fall 2021 and has served as a best practice model for other institutions. [More info]

Land Acknowledgement



The UC San Diego community holds great respect for the land and the original people of the area where our campus is located. The university is built on the un-ceded territory of the Kumeyaay Nation. Today, the Kumeyaay people continue to maintain their political sovereignty and cultural traditions as vital members of the San Diego community. We acknowledge their tremendous contributions to our region and thank them for their stewardship.

The Intertribal Resource Center is working with Kumeyaay community members and the campus community to create an official statement for UC San Diego.  The above statement is a temporary draft currently used by the Intertribal Resource Center (ITRC). ITRC is one of six Campus Community Resource Centers serving the UC San Diego campus. We are focused on supporting Native American students and promoting educational access in our tribal communities.
