The steel is going up for the Teaching and Learning Complex, or TLC, a classroom building in the campus core — on the site of Surge IV, between the Silo and The Grove (formerly Surge III).

The TLC, which will provide classroom space in the campus core for approximately 2,000 students, is due for occupancy in the spring of 2022.

New K-9 on the health campus

The Davis campus has Charlie, and now the Sacramento campus has Rono. He’s the first full-time police dog to be assigned to UC Davis Health. Like Charlie, his role will be split between serious police duties and outreach.

“I’m definitely a ‘people pup,’” Rono is quoted as “saying” in a news article.

Lt. Danny Sheffield said Rono was scheduled to complete training and have a swearing-in ceremony with Police Chief Joe Farrow this month.
