After an uproar ensued over the University of California's new logo, which debuted this week, the school system announced Friday that it would be doing away with the new design. Reiterating that the logo was never intended to be UC's only logo — the traditional seal would still be used on diplomas and letterheads — senior vice president Daniel Dooley nevertheless acknowledged that "it also is important that we listen to and respect what has been a significant negative response by students, alumni and other members of our community."
