UC Board of Regents Hearing Today

It may be spring break for some, but the The UC Board of Regents has a busy schedule, including addressing the issue of intolerance.

At its scheduled meeting today, the Board is scheduled to hold an extended public comment period and discussion of recent incidents of campus intolerance and UC’s efforts to address them.  The messages was sent out via email to members of the UCI community from the UC Office of the President on Monday.

In it, the email said the Office of the President will provide live streaming video of the discussion, available to members of the public and the UC community at: http://www.ustream.tv/regentsmeeting.  The public comment period begins at 8:30 a.m., Wednesday March 24th. I clicked on the link at 8:47 and the message on the stream informed me that item discussion will begin at 9:20 a.m.

Following that 40-minute period, President Mark Yudof, Regents Chairman Russell Gould, Interim Provost Lawrence Pitts, Senior Policy Advisor Christopher Edley and select chancellors will discuss the recent events and the actions they are taking to ensure that these types of incidents do not occur in the future.

For employees who are unable to watch the proceedings live, an archived tape will remain available at the same web address: http://www.ustream.tv/regentsmeeting.
