Outgrow the Expected
On January 27, UC Davis launched its “Outgrow the Expected” campaign with a big 2020 Kickoff Celebration drawing well over a thousand staff and faculty. Chancellor May was joined by leaders throughout the university to articulate a vision designed to help UC Davis become better known, better understood and better supported. Ours is a unified narrative encompassing every part of our enterprise in which we shed some of our innate humility and position UC Davis as a powerful institution tackling life’s most urgent challenges and unjust conditions.
Outgrow the Expected — a Poem
Dr. Andy Jones — writer, radio host, University Writing Program lecturer and former Poet Laureate of the City of Davis — wrote this wonderful poem for the occasion.
Tomorrow — Spoken Word
Denisha "Coco Blossom" Bland, Lead Poet and Mentor of Sacramento Area Youth Speaks (SAYS), delivers a stirring adaptation of her piece called “Tomorrow.”
