My favorite line from the UC Berkley article:

"Napolitano had informed the deans and chairs that she would be briefed on attendance and the “tenor of the conversations.”"

Not only are you "expected" to attend the totally optional seminars, you will be closely monitored for sufficient enthusiasm. All Winston Smiths will be unpersonned.
