On her eighth day of rehearsal at UC Irvine, Kitty McNamee decided to refocus her dancers on the theme of their piece. Rather than demonstrate steps or go over musical motifs, the choreographer gathered her team around and read a different set of directions - from the dictionary. The word in question was "transit," which is also the working title of McNamee's entry in UC Irvine's annual National Choreographers Initiative. With the online Oxford Dictionaries offering a slew of meanings, she rattled them off quickly: the movement of people or materials, the passage of celestial bodies and so on. FOR THE RECORD: Dance program: An article about the National Choreographers Initiative in the July 24 Calendar section described the initiative as a UC Irvine event.

A member of a UC Irvine fraternity seen wearing blackface in a parody music video isn't the first time charges of racism have been lobbed at the campus community, students said. “This blackface video isn't the first, nor is it the last, example of racism that's been shown on this campus,” UCI Black Student Union co-chairwoman Ainaria Johnson told the Daily Pilot . In 2011, the campus cafeteria served chicken and waffles on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Officials at UC Irvine have launched an investigation after a public outcry over the recent video, which involved four students doing a parody of a song that included mimicking of performers such as Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z.
