Final UC Report on Protests and Policing Released

September 14, 2012

The final "Response to Protests on UC Campuses" report was released by the University of California on Sept. 13.

The report from UC General Counsel Charles F. Robinson and UC Berkeley Law School Dean Christopher F. Edley Jr. includes 49 recommendations and synthesizes months of inquiry into best practices for handling demonstrations, civil disobedience and free-speech issues related to protests throughout the 10 campuses of the UC system.

The report is online.

After incidents involving police and protesters at the Berkeley and Davis campuses last November, UC President Mark G. Yudof directed Robinson and Edley to identify best practices and make recommendations for future responses to demonstrations and civil disobedience.

Among the key areas covered in the final report recommendations are increasing communication between management teams and stakeholders, actual management of incidents by administration members and the campus police, training and, in some cases, the creation of new policies.
