the UC Regents also might comment on:

UC Merced tragedy bring tight-knit community even closer

http://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/article/UC-Merced-tragedy-bring-tight-knit-community-even-6617405.php

Such a violent event would be a tragedy on any campus. But the question is whether it will slow enrollment at the fledgling school by creating a negative perception of Merced, a name that means mercy.

-Still waiting for Dirks to comment on those recent study abroad initiatives recently announced by Cal in light of recent news events- if just to say that Cal obviously remains committed to it/them.

Court denies UC request to dismiss claims in Title IX lawsuit
http://dailybruin.com/2015/11/13/court-denies-uc-request-to-dismiss-claims-in-title-ix-lawsuit/
In late September, the UC asked the court to dismiss some claims in the lawsuit because UC officials believed they adequately responded to Takla’s complaints. They added Piterberg did not pose a threat to Takla because he stopped harassing her after she reported the incidents.

The court decided UCLA is still responsible for addressing all Title IX complaints because students are still vulnerable to harassment, regardless of whether it has stopped in the meantime.

However, the court dismissed Glasgow’s claims that UCLA failed to properly supervise and train Piterberg, because public universities such as UCLA are not liable for their employees’ actions.
