University of California, Davis Key Developments

University of California Davis' Student Health Center Doctors Join Picket Lines to Protest Unfair Labor Practices

Seventeen doctors work at the student health center at University of California Davis - and most appeared on the picket line to protest what they call unfair labor practices by university administration. Protestors say the strike is more about a union request for information than stalled contract negotiations. The strike follows a year of unsuccessful collective bargaining between the Union of American Physicians and Dentists and university administration. The union organized about 150 university student health center doctors in 2013 but has yet to sign its first contract. Strikes were held at all 10 UC health centers statewide. The union filed an unfair labor practice charge because the university has not responded to requests for information about use of discretionary funding to hire more mental health workers.

The University of California, Davis and Sunpower Corp Plans to Build A 16-Megawatt, Ground-Mounted Solar Power Plant

The University of California, Davis and SunPower Corp. plan to build a 16-megawatt, ground-mounted solar power plant that is expected to generate 14% of UC Davis' electricity needs. The university anticipates that, when the plant is completed in 2015, more than one-third of total electricity demand on campus will be served from carbon neutral energy sources. On completion, the project will be the large solar power installation in the University of California system, and the large solar power plant to offset the electricity demand of a U.S. university or college campus. The plant, to be built on a 70-acre site south of Interstate 80, will be owned and operated by SunPower, which will also design and construct the project. The plant will improve the University's ability to accurately budget for electricity costs, and UC Davis anticipates that it will provide an effective long-term hedge against future utility rate increases. SunPower will install its SunPower(R) Oasis(R) Power Plant technology at the site, which uses single-axis tracking technology to position high efficiency solar panels to track the sun throughout the day, increasing energy capture by up to 25 % over fixed-tilt solar technology. The technology includes robotic panel cleaning capability that reduces water usage by approximately 90 % over traditional cleaning methods. The project is designed to generate 33 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year, compared to total campus electricity use of 228 million kilowatt-hours in 2013-14. It is expected to reduce the campus' carbon footprint by an estimated 9%.

The University of California, Davis and Academia Sinica Sign Agreement on Exchanges and Tech Transfer

The University of California, Davis, and Academia Sinica, the preeminent academic institution in the Republic of China (Taiwan), have entered into a collaborative agreement to develop a unique educational and scientific exchange program that couples cutting-edge research with opportunities to translate innovative technologies and commercially relevant discoveries into new companies. The agreement was signed Sept.12 in Taipei by Harris Lewin, vice chancellor for research at UC Davis and President Chi-Huey Wong of Academia Sinica. The program will be formally launched at a joint UC Davis-Taiwan Collaboration Symposium to be held in late 2014. The agreement takes advantage of the complementary strengths and resources of UC Davis and Academia Sinica and their respective geographic locations. The new partnership has the potential to transform international, technology-oriented models of academic collaboration by combining educational and research collaboration with a technology transfer component. As part of the agreement, up to four postdoctoral fellows and graduate students from Taiwan will be supported by Academia Sinica, spending two years at UC Davis to conduct collaborative research. The training of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows will promote long-term collaborations between faculty and scientists at UC Davis and in Taiwan. The initial areas of research training will focus on agriculture, human health and microbiome research.
