Inauguration of Chancellor Nicholas Dirks

Editor’s note: This is part of our wider coverage of the inauguration of Nicholas Dirks as UC Berkeley’s 10th chancellor on Nov. 8, 2013. Click here to see our page documenting the day.

On Friday at Zellerbach Hall, Chancellor Nicholas Dirks was sworn in to become UC Berkeley’s tenth Chancellor. The pomp and ceremony within Zellerbach Hall contrasted and clashed with the protesters who were demonstrating against the arrival of new UC President Janet Napolitano to the campus for the first time. The protests were held outside Zellerbach Hall and at Sproul Plaza.
