UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi resigned Tuesday. She had been suspended from her post since April when the University of California launched an investigation into allegations of nepotism, misuse of funds and conflict of interest. The investigation into Katehi found she made statements that were “misleading at best” about her role in hiring social media firms to try to suppress negative coverage of a campus police officer pepper spraying UC Davis student protesters.
