Commentary: Pushing UCD To Do Its Fair Share Is Not Anti-Student

At the end of the day, the best option from a planning and land use perspective is to put student housing on campus where students can bike and walk to class. The city of Davis does not appear to have the capacity to solve the student housing crisis without considerable buy-in from the university.

And yet, for reasons I do not fully understand, UC Davis is not willing to fully embrace this issue. If they do not house the students – where do they expect students to live?


This other piece there cropped up, seems to point to numbers that are ,well, if you used those numbers on IX or Clery they would get some srutiny ..so, are the numbers believeable on WB?

This op ed on some recent CA Leg moves, includes suggestions...

Unfortunately, in the current climate, more practical campus-based solutions than unenforceable “yes” policies are unlikely to be considered by most higher education institutions, alumni, or state legislatures, when these might actually deal with the problem. ....This is certainly a less costly service than adding 50 new Title IX coordinators on each campus as Harvard did.
