The University of California Student Association is calling for the resignation or firing of UC Davis Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi, joining with seven legislators and student protesters who say Katehi must go.
The association, which represents 240,000 students in UC schools statewide, cited revelations Wednesday in The Sacramento Bee that UC Davis spent at least $175,000 trying to scrub the Internet of negative references related to the November 2011 pepper spraying of students by campus police.
Katehi rebuffed a question Saturday at the campus' annual Picnic Day about student calls that she step down. She said the university will respond further to The Bee's report on Monday, but gave no details.
