Last week we asked: when will the Governor consult the state-mandated advisory committee in the appointment of Regents instead of calling on financiers and others who fail to responsibly oversee UCOP as well as failing to represent the public interest? This week the San Francisco Chronicle had a long editorial linking Governor Brown’s irresponsibility to the irresponsibility of the Regents. Along similar lines, CUCFA (Council of UC Faculty Associations) has written a letter protesting the Governor’s failure to consult the advisory committee, pointing out that several current and nominated Regents, with investments in for-profit and online higher education, stand to benefit from the deterioration of public higher education. You can find it here.
