UC Davis

Moving on

By From page A6 | July 31, 2013

With Jacob Appelsmith’s selection and the promotion of Adela de la Torre from interim to full-time vice chancellor of student affairs, also last week, six of the 11 people who took part in those ad hoc phone meetings prior to the pepper-spraying remain on campus.

They are: Chancellor Linda Katehi and her chief of staff, Associate Chancellor Karl Engelbach; senior campus counsel Mike Sweeney; Provost Ralph Hexter; John Meyer, vice chancellor of administration and resource management; and Griselda Castro, special assistant to the vice chancellor of student affairs.

Those who have left the UCD are: former chief campus counsel Steven Drown (now at UCOP); Annette Spicuzza, police chief (retired, having stepped down while under investigation after the pepper-spraying); Fred Wood, vice chancellor of student affairs (chancellor of the University of Minnesota, Crookson); Cynthia Harrison Barbera, executive director of strategic communications (co-founder of eGlobal Reader, a maker bilingual electronic educational books); and Claudia Morain, news service director (director of communications at University of the Pacific).

Among the steps UCD has taken in response to the pepper-spraying: forming a campus community council that has been meeting regularly since May 2012; putting in place a new emergency operations plan and an emergency and crisis team; and providing additional training for police, administrators and faculty and student representatives.
