The preliminary Regents agenda for the July 16-18 meeting has been posted. As yet, the detailed attachments to the agenda are not available. However, there will be approval of contribution increases to the pension for next year (2014-15) and an interim replacement for the university’s Chief Investment Officer who suddenly resigned without explanation. In a closed session, the Regents will discuss the criminal case the LA district attorney is pursuing against UCLA Prof. Patrick Harran. See http://uclafacultyassociation.blogspot.com/2013/04/justice.htmlfor our most recent post on that case. The Christian Head case charging discrimination (and involving a viral YouTube video) at UCLA will also be discussed at that closed session. It was discussed a year ago at the Regents. See http://uclafacultyassociation.blogspot.com/2012/07/regents-litigation-agenda-behind-closed.html.* An amendment to the code of faculty conduct and discipline will be considered – but what that entails is not yet available.
When more information becomes available, we will blog about it. The Regents agenda is at: http://regents.universityofcalifornia.edu/regmeet/july13.html
Meanwhile, it’s hard to wait for the complete post:
