Thus Spake Katehi (on the Civility Project)

When I first arrived, I was concerned about a number of acts of intolerance that occurred on a campus historically known for its civility. But we responded quickly and the community has enthusiastically embraced our hate-free campus initiative and our efforts to encourage a more inclusive campus. Last week’s very successful Civility Project is a good example of that.  From Chancellor Linda P. B. Katehi webpage.

UC-Davis's most recent civility project.

And if you read between the lines of this quote in the L. A. Times, Linda seems to say, "There's more where this came from."

However, she also insisted that though “the university has the responsibility to develop the appropriate environments that ensure the practice of these freedoms, by no means should we allow a repeated violation of these rules as an expression of personal freedom.” [My emphasis added.)
