Kim and Jack Johnson return to UCSB and more


Kim and Jack Johnson Return Home as Gauchos Celebrate UCSB's Unique Environment: The Johnsons were honored with 2015 UCSB Distinguished Alumni Awards at this year's reunion for their green and environmental initiatives. The couple's Johnson Ohana Foundation recently collaborated with UCSB on the Edible Campus project, through a $5,000 "seed" investment. More than 7,000 UCSB alumni and friends took part in the weekend, smashing the previous attendance record. Additionally, Gauchos raised over $100,000 for UC Santa Barbara.

UCSB Named Greenest Public University in U.S.: UCSB is ranked No. 3 in the nation in Princeton Review's Top 50 Green Colleges. UCSB is the No. 1 ranked public university in the country since the two colleges ahead of UCSB are private universities.

Isla Vista Government Option Heads to Sacramento: AB3, legislation to form a special services district in Isla Vista, will be heard before the state Assembly Local Government Committee on May 6 in Sacramento. The legislation, sponsored by former Isla Vista resident, current Assembly member Das Williams, would create a district that could tax residents and provide services ranging from community centers to parking enforcement. Recent amendments have added the UC Santa Barbara campus and its student and faculty housing to the district, while creating a 7 member board that would include one appointment by the UC Santa Barbara Chancellor.
