    • It shows the danger of not including one’s constituency in the decision-making process. Had they done something sensible (like announcing a design competition for a new logo), they would not have suffered this enormous pushback. It is almost exactly like the “new Coke” debacle of incredibly bad marketing. The UCOP has a history of being extremely stupid about bad publicity (like giving a $50,000 raise to the new UCB chancellor), because they never talk to anyone outside their circle of cronies.

      • How ironic that their improved communication process was both announced and retracted without any direct communication between the institution and its faculty.
