UC - Como Una Telenovela Otra Vez?

Inside Higher Ed is covering the GSEIS issues at UCLA

and, UCLA just recently put out the call for a new VC for equity and inclusion

the UC Campus Climate surveys around all the UC campuses embargoed until- well, who knows when they will see the light of day...- guess they wanna have all their new VCs of equity and inclusion, along w/ their new staff, hired before the release of the climate surveys.

recent headlines outta UCLA -- remind me of U Conn. Prof. Gaye Tuchnman WannaB U presentation from this event at the 54:00 mark. (from 2010-pre prop 30 vote-- when folks weren't in sleep mode or believing that a CA prop was gonna fix everything, change narratives nationwide-- good to remember that time.) More if you fast forward to the 5:00 mark here background info here
University Diaries: Motto, Postmodern American University: SI NIHIL IBI
Remaking:ObamaCare and UC Care

there is also this ol' story to consider in the mix- a chronology of other recent stand offs. payback, the next installment of the ongoing soap opera?


UC officials told the Los Angeles Times that their offer at UCLA “is incredibly fair,” without providing any details. Blue Shield and UCLA had earlier standoffs in 2006 and 2008, but this one could be more significant, due to the tougher economic times, the looming pressures imposed by national health reform, and the fact that Blue Shield’s own profits are now capped, giving it a stronger than ever incentive to hold the line on escalating health care costs.
Will Blue Shield’s public outing work? Will UC fight back? Stay tuned. This soap opera is just beginning -- at least in its public phase.
