Yesterday, the Academic Senate Representative Assembly met in Mondavi Center Jackson Hall for the following:
1) Discussion of events within University of California related to Chancellor Katehi
2) Discussion of what action, if any the Davis Div of AS should undertake in accordance with shared governance
As you can imagine, there was much discussion around diverse points of view. In the end, the Representative Assembly approved three resolutions (described in the attached document).

I am so saddened that so FEW faculty of the many hundreds on payroll, chose to attend THIS meeting and yet I am heartened that those who DID go, WERE vocal…
My son shared with me just a day ago some dirt HE was hearing and so much of it was SO full of LIES>>>>
People will ALWAYS have THEIR own opinions and I do also…
But, in my decades here at UCD since arriving as an ACTIVIST student in 1970, and working so closely with SO many Chancellors over so many decades and seeing SO much covered up and SO much hushed up….and I feel that Chancellor Katehi was still the BEST one yet….
I hope that the ACADEMIC SENATE and faculty continue to speak out against the TRUE issues…
The secret and ILLEGAL deals between the UCOP and the GOV… THAT IS ILLEGAL per UC Bylaws and so forth….
