"Chosen to separate in such a way", UC Regents Committee Shuffle, more

LA Times:UC San Diego sues USC and scientist, alleging conspiracy to take funding, data


then, this new development for the UC Regents as they adjust their committees:

Bonnie Reiss now chairs compensation-- USC and UC going at it over poaching of faculty
where the UC Regents are the ones named goin' after USC... guess it gets pretty tangled territory.
UC Regents compensation chair bio includes: "Global Director of the Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy at the University of Southern California"



Did this next happen in closed session? Were there multiple candidates for chair?:
Also: At the May Regents meeting, the Board elected Regent Monica Lozano as the new chairman beginning July 1. Regent Lozano was appointed to the Board by Governor Davis in 2001 for a 12-year term and then she was re-appointed by Governor Brown in 2014 to a term ending in 2022. The Board also re-elected Regent Fred Ruiz to serve as vice chairman. Lozano's reappointment confirmation at the CA Senate rules video can be found further down below, scroll.

Also a new student regent term begins
UCLA student Abraham "Avi" Oved has been appointed to be the student Regent for 2015-16.. He is a non-voting Regent-designate from July 16, 2014 until his term begins on July 1, 2015.

This: 'Students Must Put Pressure On UC Regents To Have Voices Heard' Daily Bruin op-ed does not take up the issue of committee work, perhaps student advisors spread out across UC Regents work might have some impact though, something to consider (it seems like Oved's suggestion is a good one until more student regents positions created)
