It’s been a quiet week. Familiar issues reared their heads: more questionable practices of the outgoing chancellor, excessive funds to investigate UCOP’s supposed tampering with the state audit, further attacks on the recruitment of under-qualified out-of-state students; Berkeley’s handling of “free speech” issues was called into question by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
July 1st will mark the inauguration of Chancellor Christ’s regime – we wish her luck in what will be a most challenging period for our campus. It also marks the end of Celeste Langan’s term of office as co-chair of BFA. We are grateful for all her dedication these last two years. At the same time, we welcome Lisa García Bedolla and Paul Fine as new members of the Executive Board.
Michael Burawoy and Celeste Langan
Co-Chairs of the BFA.
