Speakers: Jack Scott, California Community Colleges Chancellor; Charles Reed, CSU Chancellor; and Mark Yudof, President of the University of California. View it here.
Yudof speaks at the 11:35 min mark - it is a 36:00 long video-includes Q & A- and pretty comprehensive. Yudof: "I don't have a plan standing here today.";"I think these are permanent cuts";--he also says 'We are made to take on add'l 30,000+ students but turning students away.'
You can also view Yudof's full testimony this week to the Assembly.

Yudof and Higher Ed begin at the 20:45 mark. (The video includes remarks not referenced in the UCOP prepared remarks advance press release.) Pay attention at the 34:00 mark! He also discusses the UT system being funded by oil and "the trouble now" at UT...
Did he call them "unreliable, fickle partners" to their face-- no, he saves that for regents meetings.
Also see UC Berkeley asked to absorb $80M of Brown's $500M cut- it discusses cuts to UCD, UCLA and other campuses as well.
UC Student Regent gave a brief video (love his new use of video updates!) overview of the January UC Regents meeting- but no update yet from him on the special UC Regent meeting during the first week of February. G-d only knows what happened.
