Note: An earlier post at http://uclafacultyassociation.blogspot.com/2013/05/may-regents-meeting-preliminary-agenda.html provided the general agenda for the upcoming Regents meeting. Apart from the item in this post and the one just prior, there is scheduled to be discussion of a report entitled "State of the University of California." Apparently, there will be no advance distribution of that report which will be presented orally by President Yudof.
Update: As prior posts have noted, the state seems to have a received a windfall of $4+ billion, probably thanks to the fiscal cliff episode around New Years. The state controller has now confirmed a) the receipt of the windfall and b) that the general fund now has a positive balance of around $4 billion. It will be interesting to see if Yudof and/or the Regents have any thoughts about the budgetary news. The controller's report through April is at http://www.sco.ca.gov/Files-ARD/CASH/fy1213_april.pdf
