He’s on Facebook Live, He’s at Tahoe, He’s Everywhere

In the three weeks Chancellor Gary S. May has been on the job, he has likely been asked hundreds of questions about his plans for UC Davis, his background and more.

Last week, he went directly to the online community in a live Q&A session on the UC Davis Facebook page. If you missed it, no worries, it’s archived: Play back Part 1 here and play back Part 2 here (Simone and Jordan May interview their dad in Part 2).

The new chancellor’s “listening tour” also included his first Staff Assembly-sponsored Breakfast With the Chancellor, at the Chancellor’s Residence.

Also last week, Chancellor May dropped by the Police Department, where he met the incoming chief, Joe Farrow, who is stepping down as California Highway Patrol commissioner, and the rest of the campus law enforcement team, including Charlie.

‘Can’t forget Charlie, of course,’ Chancellor May said in a tweet with this photo he posted from the Police Department. That’s Joe Farrow, the new chief, opposite the chancellor. (Gregory Urquiaga/UC Davis photo)
