an update on this since earlier on Cal was gonna step in  on an unclear approach  and now:

"Mills College and Alumnae Association End Legal Fight"

https://www.insidehighered.com/quicktakes/2022/01/14/mills-college-and-alumnae-association-end-legal-fight

"Mills College and the Alumnae Association of Mills College have dropped their respective lawsuits against each other, the college announced Thursday.

The Alumnae Association sued college officials in July, hoping to receive more detailed financial information about the college and ultimately slow a merger with Northeastern University. The college countersued, and the two parties have subsequently spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees.

Litigation “will be concluded upon review and entry of the dismissal order by the assigned judge,” according to a press release."

-difficult to fight for it if this is the history and maybe just as well Cal isn't involved going forward since UC has its own challenges cultivating its non-wealthy and URM alumni as well: 

"Opinion: Mills College never cultivated its alumnae of color"

this update on high profile SJSU case is an interesting read:

--there is a different approach , disparity in  Title IX case handling in the sports related cases vs 'those covered under Academic personnel manual subjects" and then vs how those who are staff or students are handled as policy,process..

or sheepishly apologize for being a US VP engaging the US b/c a certain US Senator says the Veep ain't allowed, remember how Biden  administration let things start off? The Biden admin allowed the first female Black VP to be told by a US sen she needs his permission first.. remember?.:

"Last Thursday, Harris gave interviews to local news outlets in West Virginia and Arizona, seemingly as a way of ramping up the pressure on the two lawmakers to back the proposal, which infuriated Manchin. "I saw [the Harris interview], I couldn't believe it. No one called me," Manchin told local news outlet WSAZ on Friday."
