Students Occupy Chancellor's Office

Title

Students Occupy Chancellor's Office

Description

Crowds of students stormed and occupied the office of a University of California, San Diego chancellor for six hours Friday after a noose was found hanging from a bookcase in the main library (Goodman, 2010).
Students wearing red handkerchiefs over their faces blocked the doors to Chancellor Marye Anne Fox's offices for hours, while more students inside chanted "Real pain, real change." The students remained inside the office several hours later (Students storm UC San Diego chancellor's office, 2010).
