Chancellor Gary S. May’s speaking appearances later this week include his State of the Campus address to the Academic Senate and a news conference regarding the forthcoming development of Aggie Square (the latter event to be livestreamed from the Sacramento campus).
• AGGIE SQUARE — The invitation-only news conference will be livestreamed starting at 9:30 a.m. Thursday (Feb. 21) from UC Davis Health. Look for the livestream on UC Davis’ Facebook and Twitter channels.
Aggie Square is an innovation center that UC Davis is developing in partnership with the city of Sacramento, and which will be located on university property in the Stockton Boulevard-Broadway corridor, near the southern end of the UC Davis Health campus. “Aggie Square harnesses the power of UC Davis and its partners to create educational and economic opportunities in Sacramento and beyond,” states the Aggie Square website.
“Aggie Square will create a unique live/learn/work/play environment to foster collaboration and creativity. Entrepreneurs, companies and workers can thrive in our technology campus that values inclusion and creates chance encounters among creative people.”
