'Alpha'-ing and OMG-ing?

Don't some UC Regents and UC Faculty sit on the board to picks who wins?

UC Davis loses bid to land stem cell clinic
but
UC San Diego Named Stem Cell “Alpha Clinic”

___
See Sac Bee on: The University of California hosts a day-long conference on enhancing the student experience through technology, starting at 8 a.m. at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, to discuss the ways in which big data, mobile devices and other new trends are changing the delivery of education. UC President Janet Napolitano kicks off the summit with remarks at 9 a.m.

In recent years, Gov. Jerry Brown has pushed the UC and California State University systems to pursue online education. It remains a priority for the governor, even after a high-profile experiment at San Jose State University last summer flopped.

It isn't just UNC-CH with this storyline set of questions that always come up - it looks similar when it happens elsewhere:

the admin didn't know?
the faculty didn't know?
the 'staff' is solely to blame?
the claims of retaliation?

'blind spots' where million$ involved?

It was just everyone assumed everyone could trust everyone else?

and along with other coverage of it--
University Diaries highlights: “Once you start admitting students to be something other than students, are the lofty goals of a research institution not inherently perverted?”
