About Town & Gown
Founded in 2007, Town & Gown sponsors lively monthly luncheon programs addressing the most interesting issues of our times, featuring UC San Diego professors and researchers, as well as luminaries from other organizations.
Town & Gown lunches are held each month, October through May, on the UC San Diego campus. These programs are open to members of Town & Gown and their guests.
Access to the intellectual capital at UC San Diego is increasingly out of reach for many promising young people who aspire to learn, grow and ultimately contribute.
Town & Gown members voluntarily support undergraduates by donating to student scholarships. The number of Town & Gown scholarships awarded annually has continued to increase as a result of our members' generosity. Learn more.
