UC Academic Senate: "To acknowledge that the manner in which UC officials responded to the UCLA attack and the degree to which these actions were kept secret constituted a serious failure of shared governance."



Sac Bee's 'pro UCOP  couples therapy talk' headline for this editorial:
"Bring understanding, not blame, to UC cybersecurity" includes:
At UC Berkeley, where suspicion of authority is hardwired into the faculty culture, a dozen or so tenured members went public last week with concerns that Napolitano had opened the door to gratuitous snooping. That’s highly unlikely, but to the extent that attorney-client privilege will permit a conversation, bringing more wise minds to this thorny issue can only be to the common good.

there's a new post on the pension:

--on the UC pension issue and recall the committee of two negotiations on it raise many shared governance questions

____

And this  other latest development posted there also raises shared governance questions
 around how UC academic Senate communicates with its members, b/c many members seem to repeatedly be taking the stance that they are continually surprised by what has been done in their name, by their leadership...:

"The UC Academic Senate Committee on Academic Computing and Communications has issued a statement we've posted here.  Although the object to the end-run around shared governance in the name of urgent security matters, they give a pass to the surveillance itself--see the final 2 bullet points in particular."

this part jumped out too:
UC Academic Senate: "To acknowledge that the manner in which UC officials responded to the UCLA attack and the degree to which these actions were kept secret constituted a serious failure of shared governance.

and

"apprpriate consultation protocols to be applied going forward"

But it is done.
All these after the fact statements on shared governance are comical, perhaps tragic comedy, but ...it is now a joke.
