Heavy On The Ex Cathedra? -Yudof's Speech To SF Chamber Of Commerce...

So, Yudof gave a speech talking about silly "grand narratives" and "canards" (Cal's Breslauer is big on the canard word too, more about that in the next post). He seems to think he could not possibly be wrong, --infallible...ugh. Much of it reads as half truths (like, yes, the middle class is hurt more but it is also UC policies that caused this to happen; and the playing with SMG numbers etc.)

You can read it here: A Baker's Dozen Myths About Higher Education President Mark G. Yudof California Chamber of Commerce Board Meeting San Francisco, CA Dec. 2, 2011

Recall, this earlier post and Yudof has an interesting past history with the Chamber of Commerce in CA.

Also, the UC Hospitals enterprise is doing Viva Las Vegas great, no shortage of resources, so much so they have branched out to other states: The Nevada Cancer Institute is being acquired by the University of California, San Diego Health System.

Big on the ex cathedra term right now after seeing it used in this story.

if you scroll to the bottom of the home page you will see we took note a long while back of the use of the term 'grand narratives' to try to just dismiss contrary opinions based in fact...
