UCSC Academic Senate Report Includes Anonymous Spy TestimonySan Francisco Bay Area 10 Feb 2006 02:08 GMT
On February 7th, the UCSC Academic Senate Task Force investigating the police response to Tent University Santa Cruz (TUSC) released a draft report (pdf). On October 12, 2005, a student at UCSC was invited to discuss the events surrounding TUSC with the task force investigating the issue. During the course of this private meeting, the chair of the task force noted that UCSC’s administration had sent "someone" to obtain information about TUSC's off-campus workshop. This information of administrative spying on student political activity is in stark contrast to Chancellor Denton’s claims that UCSC’s administration and police are not engaged in spying on students.
