Celebrating Our ‘Aggie Heroes’
You become an Aggie Hero through your everyday actions and words.
Coming Attractions for 2018-19
With the new academic year well underway, I wake up every morning anxious to take on the new day.
To the Top of the Charts
Just like the classic TV theme to “The Jeffersons” says, “We’re moving on up!”
Looking Back on a Year of Hospitality and Heat Waves
What I’ve learned in my first year is that Davis residents care deeply about their community and want to see UC Davis and its chancellor be successful.

Response to Provocative Fliers
A seemingly benign flier that appeared around UC Davis over the weekend (Nov. 4-5) serves as a reminder that our campus, for all its charm, is hardly insulated from the issues facing our society at large.
First Day at UC Davis
I can’t tell you how excited LeShelle and I are to have finally landed in Davis. I say that despite the triple-digit temperatures that greeted us on our arrival here a couple weeks ago.
