UC-Berkeley’s explosive call for more campus autonomy

You probably saw the article in today’s LA Times about a report from UC-Berkeley calling for more campus autonomy within UC.  

The University of California (UC) needs to respond to the fundamental and ongoing changes that are occurring around it if it is to remain financially sustainable, accessible, and academically excellent. As the campuses that make up UC have matured in the past 50 years they have, rightly, developed unique strengths and challenges.  The uniqueness of individual campuses has been a natural response to the increasing complexity of our world and the highly competitive nature of higher education.  These differences have been compounded by the facts that a much lesser fraction of the university budget now comes from the state and that there has been a continual evolution in the missions of the university as a whole. We propose that the Regents create and delegate appropriate responsibilities to campus-based governing boards to enable more effective campus oversight and management, while retaining their university-wide policy and fiduciary responsibilities.
