This week’s announcement of a new campaign to increase visibility of UC Davis wasn’t just about speakers on a stage — the 2020 Kickoff Celebration on Monday (Jan. 27) included interactive activities that all of the 1,000 or so staff and faculty members in attendance could take part in.

Here we’ve compiled some of what they said about the event on social media. See more posts on the UC Davis Tagboard for the event.
