Those applications trends, Regents meeting, regent appointment to future CA online community college

See:

Good article on :

"New data show drop in applications to University of California after years of growth - Even as selective colleges in many parts of the country report increases, system sees application decline -- after years of increases. Some of the private colleges in the state with large in-state student populations (and ability to focus on minority students) see growth " - Inside Higher Ed

- its about out of state applicants realizing that UC has to consider CA residents first in applications process.
-its about UC lack of support services for minority students (and the validity of UC's claim that they are constrained by rules from providing such programs and services) and the fact of private college ability to provide programs and services to those students.
- and when UC talked historically about 'tidal wave' of larger new class sizes, there is now the prognosis that in 10 years there will be a widespread -not just UC- potential decrease in applications across the board. Should we call that reversal a ,.. riptide?
