Local media reported that Katehi remained in a media room for more than two hours after her news conference Saturday as protesters waited outside. She reportedly took a back exit to her waiting SUV, walking past a three-block-long group of students who, in a coordinated effort, remained silent.

Fire her.

‘I really feel confident at this point the university needs me,’

Translation: 'My retirement benefits don't vest for a while, and how am I ever going to find another job like this one after what has happened here?'

As chancellor of UC Davis, Katehi will receive an annual salary of $400,000. This is a 12.4 percent increase above her current salary of $356,000 at the University of Illinois. Vanderhoef currently earns $315,000 as UC Davis chancellor.

UC seeks to be competitive in the employment markets relevant to its faculty and staff hires, and the base salary of $400,000 is still substantially below the 2008 median of $628,000 among chancellors at UC’s comparison group of 14 public and private U.S. campuses with medical schools.

Other benefits
Consistent with university policy, Katehi also will receive:

University-provided housing;
An annual automobile allowance of $8,916;
A relocation allowance of $100,000 (25 percent of base salary) to offset various costs associated with her relocation to California, subject to proportional repayment if the position is resigned within the first four years of appointment;
Payment of packing and moving costs for household effects, library and related equipment;
Reimbursement of travel expenses for business-related visits to the campus during the transition period; and
Eligibility for a Mortgage Origination Program loan and payment of relocation costs if she continues in a tenured faculty position after stepping down as chancellor. An annual allocation of campus funding will be established if an active research program is maintained during the appointment as chancellor.
Katehi will receive standard pension, health and welfare, and senior management benefits, including senior management life insurance, executive business travel insurance, executive salary continuation for disability, accrual of sabbatical leave and an administrative fund.

Katehi’s husband, Spyros Tseregounis — who like Katehi did his graduate study at UCLA, completing a Ph.D. in chemical engineering — holds an adjunct faculty position at the University of Illinois. UC Davis will be considering him for a similar or equivalent appointment.

She's got a doctorate in EE. Let her go get a job using her degree.

Chancellors make absolutely ridiculous salaries, and get the university-supplied on campus mansion and all those other benefits.

Sorry FC, but it's by no means clear how responsible she is for this incident. It's not even clear that she is the person to whom the police were reporting; that should, in theory, have been the Provost's job. It's only clear that she sent out a completely stupid e-mail to the campus community before she knew the facts of what has occurred, in a misguided effort to calm the situation. She has acted far more swiftly than Berkeley's chancellor in assembling an investigation, condemning the police action, and putting the head of the police and two officers on suspension.

Where are all the voices calling for the ouster of Berkeley's Chancellor Birgeneau? After all, police there punched completely passive students with clubs and dragged women across the ground by their hair. Who has asked him to resign? Why is Katehi the one everybody turns on? Hint: What do she and the mayor of Oakland have in common? -- the one mayor who has been called on to resign over botched Occupy reactions?
