Listen to the Regents Meeting of Nov. 17, 2016

The temporary archiving of the Regents meeting of November 17 was blocked by YouTube for a time - as blog readers will know. There was some kind of copyright problem. The best guess of yours truly is that it had something to do with the music that plays during closed sessions and points where the meeting is shut down by demonstrations. Anyway, the problem appears to have been overcome.

The Nov. 17th meeting lasted over five hours. I have only had a chance to sample what went on but there is some interesting material in which there is discussion of the 7.25% long-term earnings assumption for the pension fund. There is also a student protest over possible tuition increases which caused an interruption. And there were public comments against layoffs of IT workers at UC-San Francisco (where the meeting was held) and which have gotten news media attention.

As we have endlessly noted, the Regents "archive" their sessions for only one year. But we archive the audio indefinitely. You can hear the session at the link below:
