University of California-Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi told NPR affiliate KQED that “as a human being,” she was “outraged” by the pepper-spraying incident on campus last week. Katehi told the radio station that it’s time for the university to move on and heal. “We need to come together and make our campus a better place,” she said.
Katehi said she takes responsibility for the incident on campus. Many have called for her resignation, but so far she’s staying put. Asked why she wasn’t present at the demonstration, Katehi said she “doesn’t go to demonstrations.”
