Chancellor's Reception for New Faculty

Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Sep 30, 2015

It was an amazingly beautiful evening reception for the new UC Davis faculty at the residence of Chancellor Linda P.B. Katahi and Spyros Tseregounis.  Each year, the Chancellor opens up her home to welcome the new faculty on campus.  I was pleased and proud to introduce King Hall's newest additions, Professors Bill Dodge and Jasmine Harris, to Chancellor Katehi and Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Ralph Hexter and a number of campus leaders.  The Chancellor gave inspiring remarks about how the new faculty were the future of UC Davis while Provost Hexter expressed his enthusiasm for the new faculty joining a warm, welcoming, and vibrant intellectual community.  This annual event is always a wonderful way to kick off the new year, and this year's reception was no different.
