CRISPR pioneer Jennifer Doudna struggles with the ethical implications of what she has wrought - LA Times
http://www.latimes.com/business/hiltzik/la-fi-hiltzik-doudna-20170721-story.html
Includes:
"Some reviews of “A Crack in Creation” have expressed disappointment, even resentment, that Doudna did not take an uncompromising stance against human experimentation or editing of the germline. “When it is time to ‘grapple with tricky ethical issues,’” complained Nathaniel Comfort of Johns Hopkins University in Nature, she resorts to “a series of rhetorical questions.”

Doudna responds: “The truth is, I don’t have answers.” Indeed, phrases such as “I don’t know” occur more often in her conversation than one might expect coming from a scientist leading her field. But that’s because so little is still known about CRISPR’s capabilities and the human genome itself that almost all the important questions are rhetorical.

But scientists can’t answer those questions in isolation; the inquiry has to be societywide. There lies another problem underscored by CRISPR.

“There’s a disconnect between the scientific community and mainstream culture, a real degradation in trust by the public,” Doudna says. “Many scientists — I’m guilty of this too — find it much more fun to do the next experiment in the lab than to take the time to explain to nonspecialists what we do or how the scientific process actually works.” The lack of trust, however, will only make it harder for society at large to decide how far it’s willing to push ahead with a revolutionary technology."

"USC kept Puliafito on the medical school faculty... He also is a central witness in a $185-million lawsuit in which the University of California has accused USC of misconduct in its hiring away of a star researcher."

See:
http://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-usc-doctor-20170717-htmlstory.html
Includes:
"Key to Keck’s rise in stature was Puliafito’s ability to headhunt the type of big-name researchers who brought grant money and prestige. He recruited more than 70 professors to Keck, according to a campus publication.

One of those coups was under intense scrutiny at the time of Puliafito’s resignation. In a court battle that is still playing out, the University of California filed suit in July 2015 against USC over its poaching of a leading Alzheimer’s disease researcher.

Puliafito was the self-described “quarterback” of efforts to land UC San Diego professor Paul Aisen, a star in the state university system.

Curing Alzheimer’s is a top priority for government agencies and pharmaceutical companies, and Aisen’s lab was overseeing groundbreaking research, including drug trials at 70 locations around the world. More than $340 million in funding was expected to flow to his lab, according to court records.

UC contended in its suit that its private school rival went beyond the bounds of academic recruiting by targeting professors and labs based on grant funding. The suit accused USC of civil conspiracy, aiding and abetting breach of fiduciary duty and other misconduct.

USC denied any wrongdoing and countersued for defamation and other claims. At the time Puliafito stepped down, UC had yet to question him under oath.

A UC lawyer deposed the former dean in September 2016, and asked about his resignation. A USC attorney objected to the question as “vague” and “overbroad.” Puliafito ultimately answered that he had a “unique opportunity” to work in private industry and that he was on sabbatical from his faculty position."

Coverage of UC Regents July Meeting


During the UC Regents board session on : Thursday Regent Makarechian seemed to claim responsibility for submitting and posting of that controversial F7 item- which was partially pulled from the regents agenda prior to the meeting. Regent M said he placed it on the agenda, as an action item right off the bat no less, in order for the regents to " make the Governor and the CA Leg pay attention"-- but no one explained the reason the item on student athletes welfare was pulled...
The final item UC Regents discussed in the last hour of the Thursday session was : UC PATH and it seems there's some revisionist history that was at play , so that's a 'don't miss' section of the meeting...

Some of the coverage from this month's meeting:
UC Board of Regents passes budget, debates new HR program
http://www.dailycal.org/2017/07/13/uc-board-regents-passes-budget-debates-new-hr-program/

describing UC PATH like this:..."Regents also discussed the UCPath program, which aims to institute a streamlined administrative system for UC employee payroll and human resources to replace the 11 separate systems currently in place. According to UCPath presenters, the program was designed to decrease costs.

In 2015, UCPath assumed responsibility for UCOP salaries, a total of about 1,800 employees — the first major test and implementation of the program.

The cost of the program drew criticism from several board members. In reference to the program’s goal of reducing costs, one regent asked, “Where are those savings?” Another expressed similar concern, remarking that “it looks like we’ve gone from UCPath to the long and winding road.”

Supporters of the program argued that the bulk of the cost is in the initial development.

UC President Janet Napolitano supported the program, stating at the meeting that she believes it is on track and “will be an essential part of the structural governance of the university.”"

-And this accurate?: "The program’s forecasted cost is about $500 million. As of May 31, the actual costs were already more than $300 million."

The program’s forecasted cost is about $500 million. " - was that the forecast when the project launched?

UC Regents Approve President's Budget, Question Constitutionality of Legislative Control
https://ww2.kqed.org/news/2017/07/13/uc-regents-approve-presidents-budget-question-constitutionality-of-legislative-control/
..."Kieffer said the university has asked outside counsel to weigh in on the constitutionality of the move. The change is authorized only for one year, but Los Angeles state Sen. Ed Hernandez has introduced a constitutional amendment that would enshrine stricter legislative control over the UC system in the state’s constitution.

Kieffer said the university brought some of these issues on itself with its previous lax budget practices and that it must communicate better with state lawmakers to improve things.

“I hope by doing our jobs right, this will be a onetime occurrence,” Kieffer said. “Because if it’s not, we’ve got a problem.”

In wake of critical audit, UC regents take a close look at president's budget
http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-uc-regents-budget-20170713-story.html



"...The regents also voiced concern over the directive from Gov. Jerry Brown and the Legislature for UC to enroll 1,500 more California undergraduates in 2018-19 — without any guarantee of how much the state would chip in to cover the additional per-student cost of enrollment.

Napolitano called that directive “fairly astonishing,” but said the state has asked UC to identify plans to pay for that growth by December.

In the end, the regents unanimously approved Napolitano’s budget and praised the staff for its clear and detailed presentation.

“This is miles from what we’ve ever seen before,” regent John A. Pérez said.

In other action Thursday, the regents approved a proposal to allow all campuses to invite letters of recommendation for up to 15% of applicants in cases where more information is needed to make an admissions decision."

UC interests in the spin and coverage...

California faces higher education crisis, but politicians dither
http://www.fresnobee.com/news/politics-government/politics-columns-blogs/political-notebook/article160263549.html

"It assumes that the three collegiate sectors – the University of California, the California State University System (CSUS) and the locally governed community college system – will collaborate seamlessly. But in fact, they compete fiercely for capital and operational funds and incessantly wage turf battles over course and degree offerings.

As a result, students face daunting hurdles to get the degrees they – and the state – need to prosper, not to mention ever-rising fees and other costs even when they nail down the courses leading to those degrees.

For decades, governors and legislators have refused to update the master plan, unwilling to take on the systems’ entrenched bureaucratic, political and union stakeholders. Instead, there have been piecemeal, one-bill-at-a-time reform efforts.

A promising approach – one widely adopted in other states – is to break down artificial barriers that separate the systems. But it’s been a tough slog in California.

The University of California resisted efforts by CSUS to gain authority to issue some doctorate degrees, for example, while CSUS objected to community colleges’ offering four-year baccalaureate degrees.

The latter is an especially critical element in higher education reform, because"...

The UC Regents Pull That Controversial Agenda. Item

UCOP Neglects Shared Governance and Seeks Authority to Lower Retiree Health Benefits (UPDATED)
http://utotherescue.blogspot.com/2017/07/ucop-neglects-shared-governance-and.html

...
"whatever one's perspective and judgement about the State's Audit of UCOP, one clear lesson that I would have thought had been learned was the need for greater transparency about decision making, more open debate about important university issues, and the increased importance of providing reasons. In pushing this proposal at the July Regents meeting (and it is an action item not a discussion item) UCOP instead is suggesting that the Regents approve an ill defined, inadequately justified rush item whose real implications for the University have not been seriously debated. If UCOP insists on moving forward with this proposal it cannot be surprised if its already damaged legitimacy among faculty and staff shrinks even further.

UPDATE: THE ITEM HAS BEEN DELAYED UNTIL THE FALL"
- the question of healthcare being viewed by UC regents as gifts or as benefits -and also how staff view it - comes up in the comments section there.
____
Also,
Update: Stealth Item Pulled from Regents Agenda
http://uclafacultyassociation.blogspot.com/2017/07/update-stealth-item-pulled-from-regents.html

____


See the posts above-- some of the faculty seem to view the agenda item as UCOP's- but the Secretary and chief of staff to the UC regents -an executive type of position and paid $250,000 per year with reporting line to the UC Regents not to UCOP-submits and publishes the agenda items ... presumably carefully doing it with the advance consent of the UC regents...


So the agenda items for UC Regents meetings come from the UC Regents. Why would faculty think it comes from solely UCOP?
See also:
http://uclafacultyassociation.blogspot.com/2017/07/the-stealth-agenda-item-kieffers-choice.html

Kind of important for UCOP leadership to make clear how the item came to be placed on the agenda as an action item- completely bypassing status as a discussion item first -which is the normal path/practice.

Important also because these recent headlines make the move a bad one for OP, e.g.:
"Is Janet Napolitano deepening economic inequality at the University of California ..."

- Or, perhaps, by inserting that agenda item in that manner, did the regents -or a certain section of regents-intend to give more life to that kind of Op Ed on OP?

Less is more?

UC on track to enroll 2,500 more Californians this fall, but admission offers decline from last year's near-historic gains

New chair of the UC Board of Regents elected

https://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/press-room/new-chair-uc-board-regents-elected

Impressions..
- it seems his tendency toward less substantive talk in public sessions- more verbal, more enthusiasm at off record 'UC Regents retreats' (are those as pricey as their sf 'palace dinners and galas'?), and closed sessions

-as chair of finance committee recall his comments conveyed he thought less granular detail needed to flow from UCOP to UC regents- with that recall awful jlac audit findings this year, did it play a part?

-and recall he has made comments during discussion about the governance restructuring of UC Regents committees and the votes on expanding who sits at the UC regents table
(Including the committee redesign- which resulted in the changes that took effect last year with concurrent/time conflicting UC regents committee meetings by design of sec of uc regents, chief of staff and OP gen counsel-voted for by rubberstamp regents- enacted by chair Lozano)

- that, even years ago, he seemed to view the UC regent board table already was overfilled and possibly far too public in deliberations on certain subjects...for instance, he reluctantly agreed to vote for the new student advisor to UC regents position
He has views on these things.
Reminder: "He is the author of The Strategy of Meetings and a contributing author of Governing Public Colleges and Universities."
He had Dirks do a general public presentation to the regents on undergrad Ed - but, he said he was in a deep dive into the subject, yet his (kieffer's) thoughts on how specifically he sees it taking place at UC was not part of the larger conversation in public q and a-- maybe that manner will change as he assumes role as chair, or not...
[Seems aside from his attendance at UCSF for the meetings he seems largely focused on S. Cal, and not much at all on N. Cal...which could be said of UC regents overall now
An N Cal chair of UC regents--when was the last time that happened?
Perhaps the thinking is that there needs to be a counterweight to UCOP in N Cal- and the power of a certain N Cal- based alpharegent -which perhaps gives that alpharegent great sway for himself but what about the local campuses? And does that thinking hold when several UC regents committees hold solely/ predominantly S Cal meetings by their entirely S Cal based committee chairs? Does/did any of this play a part in current Berkeley budget woes? The once a year non UCSF regents meeting location site is almost always in S Cal - this year UCSD- does that just push UCD, UCSC, UCM interests further to the margin? Is it now to be that N Cal is solely represented by that alpharegent, OP and individual and less powerful Chancellors --and not by fully appointed ( non ex-officio, non short term student slotted) regents?]

Recall he also is involved in music composing etc

Regent Perez (also S Cal based, focused) is now the vice chair,
While many other committee chairs maintain the same committee chair positions they've had for several years- all of the committees are headed exlusively by S Cal based regents as committee chairs..

With this UC regent "election" in mind also think about: this

And, keep in mind what is currently going on with that controversial UC Regents finance committee agenda item on UC retirement benefits being slashed set for next week, see :
http://uclafacultyassociation.blogspot.com/2017/07/with-6-days-to-go-there-is-elaboration.html


___
This latest raises more questions:
-- shouldn't the letter be to "George", as in the new uc regents chair, as well? And Chalfant incorrectly states it is scheduled for discussion, but it is Not just a "discussion item" , it is an "action item"-action items get voted on- two very different things.
See:
Re: Regents Item on Retiree Health

Dear Janet:

At its June 28, 2017 meeting, the Academic Council unanimously endorsed the attached letter from the University Committee on Faculty Welfare (UCFW) opposing a proposed Regents item scheduled for discussion in July that would remove the 70% floor for aggregate expenditures on retiree health, and allow placement of a cap on the rate of growth of the maximum UC employer contribution to an individual retiree’s health coverage at 3%.*

The only consultation with the Senate that has occurred about this proposal has been a limited discussion concerning how a 3% cap on per capita growth in the University’s contribution affects the liability calculated under new GASB** rules. UCFW notes that UCOP has not vetted the 70% proposal with the full UCFW membership, its Health Care Task Force, the Task Force on Investments and Retirement (TFIR), or any stakeholder group, and has not responded to UCFW’s request for additional modeling that would allow the Senate to evaluate the effect of the proposed changes on costs for current and future retirees. Likewise, TFIR has been not been able to evaluate the fiscal impact of the proposal on the University.

It is impossible to evaluate the effects of any proposed change in benefits without the requested modeling...

(B)y letting Finance get ahead of Human Resources, both shared governance and the thoughtful management of benefits have been disregarded. The alternative is to engage in a thorough consultative process assessing all options and including all stakeholders: retirees, active employees, the Senate and its Health Care Task Force (which contains some of the nation’s preeminent experts), before making any changes to retiree health benefits.

Thank you for considering the Senate’s views on this matter. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,
Jim Chalfant, Chair
Academic Council

Town-Gown and Dirks being blamed for Cal's bad , abruptly changing student housing planning?

See:
http://www.dailycal.org/2017/07/05/solve-student-housing-crisis-chancellor-christ-turns-city/


--Part of the push from UCOP on student housing also involves their hedge that they can get more out of alumni/ more in $ donations they call euphemistically "alumni engagements"- which they've studied deeply and now, from policy standpoint management believes those alumni donors only happens if students (forced to?) live on campus, to effect a loyalty to the campus- this has been discussed in these terms at uc regents meeting over the last several years under the subject heading of fundraising, outreach, alumni relation, cost of attendance etc. Did that help drive the creation of circumstances in the present day- where students need to, must resort to on campus living?

..."unfortunately, we’ve been duped before.

We were hopeful when Janet Napolitano was tapped for UC president. Now she’s fumbling through allegations from the most recent state audit while keeping students at arm’s length.

We were hopeful when Dirks was tapped for chancellor, and we made a request for him to be more accessible. Then he put a fence up around his mansion and flubbed on serious sexual misconduct allegations. Time and again, our leaders have disappointed.

Don’t do us dirty, Christ. We understand that you have a very good reputation. But we’re not going to have the wool pulled over our eyes again. When it comes to your chops, we’ll believe it when we see it"

Decision and Indecision, suddenly this Summer....

http://www.dailycal.org/2017/07/03/carol-christ-looks-address-cal-athletics-corrosive-budget-deficit/
...
We’re going to be bringing in a team to review the finances of athletics and to make sure that we are realizing all our revenue opportunities and also being as efficient as we can be,” Christ said. “That work will start to take place over the summer.”
...

Because (prongs one and three) are so different in the course that they would put Cal Athletics on in terms of balancing its budget I believe the decision about prongs has to be made this summer,” Christ said.
...
"I don’t think that there are going to be decisions made this summer about reducing the size and scope of the athletics program and there are a lot of prior decisions that need to be made before we get to that one,” Christ said.

http://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/article/New-UC-rule-to-shorten-timetable-for-sex-harass-11262375.phpQ
"The rules don’t say how harassers should be disciplined. But they specify the steps and timeline for how UC will handle accusations against faculty and staff. For example, within 40 days after a violation has been determined, the chancellor must make a decision about discipline. If the harasser is a faculty member with tenure — a lifetime job protection — a referral, if appropriate, must also be made within that time to the faculty panel that decides whether to revoke tenure.

In UC’s 149-year history, just eight professors have lost tenure. Many more have voluntarily quit when pressured to do so."

Then: Title IX moving forward with Chancellor Christ

http://www.dailycal.org/2017/07/02/title-ix-moving-forward-chancellor-christ/

Includes:
Campus student advocate Jillian Free said in an email she would like to see more dialogue between the Christ administration and the campus.

Free added that she hopes there will be more accountability from faculty and administrators concerning sexual misconduct policies, as she believes standards for faculty are lower than those for students.

Free said in her email, however, that she believes the Christ administration will prioritize sexual violence and sexual harassment issues, but added that it is important to address the topic in a more “top down” manner.

“Faculty, administrators, and staff should be the first to set standards for proper conduct in our campus community,” Free said in her email.

Interesting:

"Berkeley students are responsible for most of the design. At the beginning of the year, Eric Holt, an assistant professor at DU who competed in the decathlon as a graduate student at Purdue, reached out to the Berkeley team and started the partnership. Now, Denver’s students play a key role in helping build the house.

“They did all of the design. We don’t do a lot of that at DU,” said Chris Landsinger, a DU graduate student studying real estate. “But Berkeley realized they were a little short-handed and we figured we could team up with them. We’re in Denver, so we have to transport it less distance and we do a lot of construction management here. This is more our kind of field.”"
