"“I think Napolitano’s job essentially is on the line if she can’t get this situation under control,” Dauber said. “It may be that there may have to be personnel changes, one or more of the university’s top leaders, in order to resolve the situation.” Regardless, Dauber says she believes the only way to ensure safety at college campuses would be mandatory annual disclosure of sexual misconduct data to state lawmakers."

LA Times on the UC regents say anti-Semitism has 'no place' on campus but reject blanket censure of anti-Zionism

Key comment on the UC Pension came from Regent Perez, he was very succinct, and expert in his comments and questions: at the 04:06:00 mark here

UC Berkeley professor Judith Butler gave public comment that was interrupted by the Secretary to the Regents - here are her comments in full and some additional comments after the amendment to the policy language and vote :

Judith Butler's Statement on UC Regents Proposed Principles Against Intolerance

Note this headline from SF Chron (it is time stamped as ten hours old at 2:30pm PST,why?) differs from LA Times:
UC regents committee OKs ‘anti-Zionism’ as discrimination

--Maybe the policy or the "aspirational" affirmations leave it all highly contestable, subjective, ongoing unresolved...

Another key point of the meeting were the comments around health treatment disparities for UC Students particularly comments on services at UC Merced and the student observer and then the UCSA leadership comments on that part of the meeting---

One more instance from the morning session of note: one of the student observers who gave comment asked if he could ask the UC Regents a couple of questions and Ed Comm Chair Island said no the UC Regents don't answer questions. The response could have been worded differently, Island could have said 'you can state or submit the questions but we don't engage in an exchange right now, we just receive your observations' or something like that...but to just say the UC Regents don't answer a student's questions that was not a great look for a teaching institution to give that studentin front of the media or the public -it might make them question the mission of UC or- UC regents understanding of the mission of UC.
