Committee of Two Negotiations and Those Recent State Audit Findings on UC

But first a few other items of note:

Don't miss the audio archive available at this link on:

The University of California is favoring thousands of out-of-state students over more qualified state residents who pay lower tuition fees, according to a state audit released this week. The university encourages out-of-state enrollment to bring in more revenue, says the audit, which also finds that nonresident enrollment has quadrupled in the last decade. Critics, including some state legislators, say that the UC is neglecting its mandate to serve Californians. But UC President Janet Napolitano called the criticism unfounded and fired back with a UC report finding that the university is using the additional tuition funds to enroll more in-state students.

Guests:

Catharine Baker, assemblymember, 16th District, California State Assembly

Then this link to in depth interviews on it:
UC Berkeley assistant basketball coach Yann Hufnagel has been fired for alleged sexual harassment. Monday's announcement from UC officials follows the resignation last week of Berkeley law school dean Sujit Choudhry after he was sued for sexual harassment. Critics say UC Berkeley has grossly mishandled harassment cases by only lightly punishing offenders. UC president Janet Napolitano has announced a new review process for such cases. Forum discusses several recent faculty harassment cases at Cal and how they have been handled by the school and the UC system.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

Dan Mogulof, executive director of public affairs, UC Berkeley

Michele Landis Dauber, professor of law and sociology, Stanford University; helped develop a sexual assault complaint and adjudication process at Stanford

Sofie Karasek, director of education and co-founder, End Rape on Campus. She graduated last year from UC Berkeley and spearheaded the federal Title 9 complaint against UC Berkeley, representing 30 students

See at the 56:00 mark from March 2015 JLAC Chair Gipson who requested the audit on UC admissions , Admin exec pay etc made the presentation where he also commented about Committee of Two Negotiations and admissions decisions as leverage came up in discussion of the audit plan, also agreement to delay the audit start until four months later, in July 2015-- in deference to Committee of Two, or deference to a part of the Committee of Two.
A flashback to consider as we also think about last week's UC Pension vote at the UC Regents. (At the very beginning of the video clip below there also is a presentation on another audit of UC related to UC acquiring CA land etc.)
What if the audit started in March with no delay and we'd heard the findings in November 2015 rather than now -one year later? Just something to consider...see at the 56:00 mark:

The Commodification of Higher Education
Colleges and universities have become a marketplace that treats student applicants like consumers. Why?
