Cybersecurity at UC

Message from Chancellor Wilcox


Faculty throughout the UC system, and particularly at Berkeley, have raised concerns regarding security measures adopted by UCOP. The attached letters from President Napolitano and Chief Operating Officer Rachael Nava outline the systemwide response to these concerns. In addition, I am attaching a letter from the Academic Senate’s University Committee on Academic Computing and Communications, which issued a statement after reviewing the matter.

For further information, please see: http://security.ucop.edu/. Questions about UCR's cybersecurity measures may be addressed to Associate Vice Chancellor Chuck Rowley at charles.rowley@ucr.edu.

Diversity Task Force Report

Dear Colleagues,

One of the issues currently facing our campus is the need to ensure that our processes for dealing with matters related to climate, equity, discrimination and harassment are fair and effective. To this end the Senate convened a Task Force to examine these concerns and provided a report to the Executive Council, that report was reviewed by Council and forwarded to the administration with several concrete recommendations; both the Task Force report and the Council memorandum are attached to this message. I am forwarding these documents to keep you appraised of the Senate's efforts in this area.

The Senate will continue to advise the administration on the implementation of changes that can best serve the campus community and, in particular, the faculty. Simultaneously the Senate will examine its own procedures and resources to also better serve the faculty.

Jose Wudka
