Spring cleaning in Davis

The UC Davis Academic Senate special committee investigating the now infamous pepper-spraying incident of Nov. 18, 2011 issued their final report (PDF). The special committee recommends that the Davis Executive Council call for the resignations of Chancellor Linda Katehi, Vice-Chancellors John Meyer and Fred Wood, and (now retired) UCD PD Chief Annette Spicuzza.

While the UCD Executive Council fell short of endorsing the call for resignations ("at this time" as they note), they passed a formal censure of the Chancellor.

These are quite extraordinary steps for the (usually sleepy) Academic Senate to take, it remains to be seen how they will be received in Mrak Hall and in Oakland.
