UC regents reschedule meeting for Nov. 28

The University of California regents have rescheduled their November meeting for the 28th.

The regents canceled a meeting at UC San Francisco’s Mission Bay campus last week, citing threats of violence. They will hold next week's meeting by teleconference, with regents calling in from the San Francisco, Merced, Los Angeles and Davis campuses and the Palm Beach Gardens Marriott in Palm Beach, Fla.

The public can listen to a live internet stream of the meeting here. There will also be an hourlong public comment period about 9 a.m., at UCSF's Mission Bay Community Center.

Although students had planned to descend on last week’s meeting to protest a possible 16 percent tuition hike, UC regents do not plan to vote on a tuition increase this month. Instead, they will discuss possible sources of private funding and vote on a 2012-13 budget and state funding request.
