If you have the time... view the video: available here of the UC Regents CA Senate Rules confirmation meeting that took place over the summer - as a refresher on the issues at hand, to flesh out who is able to communicate that 'Public Higher Ed Vision thing' as in 'differing visions of what higher education should be' etc.

Has anyone really offered a true public higher ed vision to Californians?
