From page A1 | July 15, 2014 |

Chancellor Linda Katehi has asked 28 faculty, staff and students to craft a plan for gathering feedback on the viability of a third UC Davis campus.

The larger “visioning” committee, chaired by the chancellor, will be broken into four subcommittees tasked with developing outreach plans for students, faculty or alumni and other external groups. Reports are due by Oct. 1.

Katehi still may add “individuals outside of UC Davis” to assist with the work, according to the online campus publication Dateline.

“This is a long-term initiative that will only succeed with continuous engagement and broad support from our campus community, and the counsel and wisdom of this committee is critical to its long-term success,” she said.

Katehi has proposed building a campus near the Capitol intended to influence state environmental, economic, scientific and social policy with a special emphasis on food and health. The fledgling World Food Center likely would be a key tenant, along with public outreach programs centered around healthy living. Developers have suggested at least two sites: the Sacramento railyards and West Sacramento’s Bridge District.

Joining Katehi on the committee:

Roger Beachy, World Food Center director; Colin Carter, professor of agricultural and resource economics; Steven Currall, dean of the Graduate School of Management; Helene Dillard, dean of the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences; Armando Figueroa, president of the Associated Students of UC Davis; Julie Freschlag, dean of the School of Medicine;

Penelope Herbert, chair of the Sacramento campus Staff Assembly; Provost Ralph Hexter; James Hildreth, dean of the College of Biological Sciences; Ken Kizer, direct of the Institute for Population Health; Richard Kravitz, director of the UC Center Sacramento; Andre Knoesen, vice chair of the Davis division of the UC Academic Senate; Michael Lairmore, dean of School of Veterinary Medicine;

Luanne Lawrence, associate chancellor for strategic communications; Lina Layiktez, chair of the Davis campus Staff Assembly; Harris Lewin, vice chancellor for research; Ron Mangun, dean of the College of Letters and Science’s Division of Social Sciences; Dennis Pendleton, dean of University Extension; Robert Powell, professor of chemical engineering and materials science;

Jon Rossini, chair of the department of theater and dance; Randolph Siverson, professor emeritus of political science; Robert Smiley, professor in the Graduate School of Management; Francene Steinberg, chair of the department of nutrition; Tom Tomich, director of the Agricultural Sustainability Institute;

Louis Warren, professor of history; Laura Van Winkle, chair of the UCD Academic Federation; Erica Vonasek, vice chair of the UCD Graduate Student Association; and Heather Young, dean of the School of Nursing.

Currall has accepted a new position as an adviser to the chancellor on the third campus. He will remain in his current post until Oct. 1.
