what's goin' on?... roundup

see Davis Vanguard article:
UC Davis Moves Further On With Third Campus, Will World Food Center Follow?

Last month it leaked out that plans were in place to potentially put the World Food Center at the railyards in Sacramento.
The university backed away from that report, however, and a source told the Vanguard in May that there were no firm plans about the placement of the potentially $1 billion center and that faculty are balking at the notion of relocating to Sacramento.
The chancellor sent out a release which formally announced plans to create an advisory group of deans, faculty, staff and students to help UC Davis explore the academic program for a possible new campus in Sacramento.
According to the release, Chancellor Katehi first mentioned the idea of a third campus in her annual State of the Campus presentation to the Academic Senate in February. At that time, she said the campus would emphasize UC Davis’ commitment to education, research, clinical and policy aspirations with a focus on food, health and the environment.

and much more detail on the latest in that piece.
