I joined the UCSD faculty in 1969.I officially retired in 2004, but have continued teaching, so 2018-19 is my 50th year at UCSD.
Winter, 2019, will be my last term teaching. I anticipate continuing those parts of the web site that are not specific to particular courses. In general, materials located on the ucsd.edu server will remain; materials on dkjordan.net will be removed or in a few cases modified for broader use and moved to ucsd.edu.

Discontinued Undergraduate 4-Unit Classes
(When I became an administrator in 1994, I was no longer required to teach, although I continued to do so. This continued to be the case after I formally retired in 2004. Several classes taught in the past have dropped off the end of the approval shelf because they have not been taught for a long time. Just for the record, here is a list of some of these. Graduate students interested in pursuing some of these topics are invited to discuss the matter with me.)
