Today’s On This Day post celebrates the twenty-fifth anniversary of the signing of the UC Davis Principles of Community. More information about the history of the Principles of Community can be found on the Office of Campus Community Relations website here.
The photo below, from the Strategic Communication Records, ran in the April 27, 1990 issue of Dateline. The caption reads: “The Principles of Community” document was ceremoniously signed last week by Chancellor Theodore L. Hullar and representatives from five of the six constituent organizations that govern UC Davis. Noting that the document was a group product, Hullar said “We did this together – that’s what community is. Everything we believe about our campus can fit within these principles.” Signers in this photo included clockwise from left seated: Jane Kimball, chair of the Academic Staff Organization; Charles Nash, chair of the Academic Senate; Hullar; Steven Johns, president of the Associated Students of UC Davis; Pierre duVair, chair of the Graduate Student Association; and Davis Heller, chair of the UC Davis Staff Assembly. Margaret Hayes, who represented the sixth constituency as chair of the UC Davis Medical Center Staff Assembly, was on vacation Friday but signed the document this week to complete the signatures.
