Chancellor Katehi in Comstock’s magazine – Divine & Conquer
Recently, Chancellor Katehi gave an interview to Comstock’s magazine, which can now be found online about how she plans to pull UC Davis through the current though financial times.
“State funding has been so unstable and uncertain,” she says. “The sooner we get off that dependency, the better we will be.”
On plan is to raise $1 billion and 100,000 donors in a 4 year plan. The current tally is $0.7 billion and 80,000 donors since last October, according to the chancellor. Sounds like a good start.
“You don’t become a great university by cutting,” she says. “Instead, you need to come up with creative solutions. That’s what we intend on doing.”
