Davis Faculty Vote Confidence in Chancellor
- Chancellor's apology doesn't end Davis protests
- UC Davis pepper spray report faults administrators, police
- Experts and activists question use of pepper spray at Davis
- Delay of pepper spray report frustrates Davis campus
- Student involvement in police security helps Davis move past pepper spray incident
Fifty-nine percent of faculty members at the University of California at Davis voted to approve a resolution that they have confidence in the leadership of Linda P.B. Katehi as chancellor, The Sacramento Bee reported. The same resolution also expressed criticism of the university's use of pepper spray against nonviolent student protesters last year -- a move that galvanized campus critics of the chancellor. By a wider margin (with 69 percent voting no), faculty members rejected a resolution of no confidence in Katehi. The Bee noted that some faculty views on Katehi are not based on the pepper spray incident. Generally, her decisions as chancellor are seen as benefiting those in the sciences, and she has stronger support there than in the humanities.
