The UC Davis Academic Senate Executive Council has censured Chancellor Linda Katehi and a special committee narrowly voted to call for her resignation based on her handling of the Nov. 18 pepper-spraying of student protesters.
Members of the special committee also urged a call for the resignation of Vice Chancellors John Meyer and Fred Wood, as well as former Police Chief Annette Spicuzza, who recently announced her retirement.
