Celebrate the Preuss Promise

Preuss Benefit 2017

Since The Preuss School UCSD opened its doors in 1999, the school has served as a beacon of opportunity, providing low-income and first-generation students with a pathway to a brighter future. Our annual benefit, The Preuss Promise, helps ensure that we can continue to provide the transformative power of a Preuss education.

Please join Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla for what promises to be an inspirational evening of fun.
