News in Brief: Occupy UC Davis plans to assemble at UC Regents Meeting today

The University of California Board of Regents meeting is scheduled to take place Nov. 13 to 15 at UCSF Mission Bay to discuss finance, compensation, health services and campus buildings, among other agenda items.

The Regents are also set to consider tuition increases for 61 professional degree programs throughout the UC.

Members of Occupy UC Davis plan to collect at the meeting in opposition to the possibility of a push toward gradual privatization of the UC system, according to organizers.
“We can’t let top UC management frame our future as inevitable privatization,” a release from UC Student-Workers Union stated.
“Student groups and unions are planning huge mobilizations for the next year to roll back tuition, cuts and the resegregation of higher education.”
