UC Regents Agenda (Partially) Posted for November

The upcoming November Regents meeting is unlikely to be as controversial as the one shown in the photo where the Regents discussed the loyalty oath in 1950.  However, the agenda below for November has some interesting items (shown in italics).

Tuesday, November 18
1:30 pm Committee of the Whole (public comment)
1:50 pm Committee on Grounds and Buildings (open session)
3:30 pm Committee on Compliance and Audit (open session)
4:30 pm Committee on Compliance and Audit (Regents only session) 

Wednesday, November 19
8:30 am Committee of the Whole (open session - includes public comment session)
9:30 am Committee on Educational Policy (open session)
10:15 am Committee on Long Range Planning (open session)
12:30 pm Lunch
1:30 pm Committee on Finance (open session)  
-Includes actuarial estimates for UC pension and retiree health care
3:45 pm Committee on Compensation (closed session)
-New management position for innovation and entrepreneurship being created

Thursday, November 20
8:30 am Committee on Finance (Regents only session)
-Although this is a closed session, it lists two cases of interest.  One seems to be a trial over the demands by certain senior managers for certain pension benefits which were (kind of) promised but never approved by the Regents.  That case has been in the hopper for a long time.  The other appears to be a dispute between UC and Blue Shield over whether the various UC med centers are covered by the Blue Shield PPO. A quick Google search did not provide more info on what this case is all about.
9:00 am Committee on Health Services (Regents only session)
9:50 am Board (Regents only session)
10:00 am Committee of the Whole  (includes public comment - open session)
10:20 am Committee on Health Services (open session)
10:45 am Committee on Oversight of the DOE Laboratories (open session)
11:15 am Committee on Compensation (open session)
11:20 am Board (open session)

More detail on the agenda will appear on the Regents' website closer to the meetings.
