An Update On The UC Irvine 11 can be found here at the WSJ site- (for the detail, not nec. for the balance- they make it clear it is not their content...)

On UC Faculty and the right to speak out on university policies etc. see: this agenda item for the upcoming UC Regents meeting,

the full agenda is here.

hostile workplace, sexual harrassment, part of Title IX, too.
there isn't really that much space between students and staff and faculty concerns, many facing the same issues -just with different titles and in different ways

this was a good read on "UC workers": The Hidden Backbone

and " UC President Mark Yudof has given up on the dream for the University of California to remain a public university supported by the state."

and a Cal Prof op ed on the value of the Humanities
