  1. fyi - the COMMITTEE vote is on Wednesday and is *in practice* the decision the Regents rubber stamp on their meeting of the whole Board.

    But the whole Board meeting vote is *the legally binding* vote.

  2. I've heard that pretty much these hearings at UCLA are being held because by law, the Regents must at least pretend to listen to students while having their coffee and eating their donuts. PEOPLE DON'T LISTEN TO PROTEST - WE NEED TO HURT THESE PEOPLE FINANCIALLY.. About 55% of undergraduate students are in need of financial assistance. How do they expect us to survive when they're hiking up fees by 32%? All ucs except ucb and uc merced are using the quarter system..What if half of us refuse to enroll this winter? The fear would be dismissal..ucs can only dismiss you if your gpa is less than 2.0 for a quarter..The least ucb and uc merced can do is to refuse to buy anything on campus-food, etc.. This is the very least we can all do if we're not willing to take a chance by not enrolling this winter or spring..Let me know what you think-we need to work together THIS WILL BE THE DEATH OF HIGHER PUBLIC EDUCATION-THIS WILL BE THE END OF THE AMERICAN DREAM
