Former Campus Day Care Teacher Under Investigation
A former male employee of UC Santa Cruz Early Education Services (EES), or campus day care services, allegedly engaged “in conduct which is incompatible with being present in a licensed child care facility based on allegations of inappropriate touching,” according to an email sent on April 14 by executive vice chancellor (EVC) Alison Galloway to families that use EES. The employee under investigation was terminated on May 3, 2014. Subsequently, Chancellor George Blumenthal has ordered a full program review of EES.
