This story was updated on Nov. 20 at 10 a.m. to reflect a correction: Mark Yudof will participate in the UC regents meeting on Nov. 28.
The regents meeting has been rescheduled for Monday, Nov. 28. UC President Mark Yudof will participate in the teleconference from the Palm Beach Gardens, Florida location, which is also open to the public, according to an email from director of admissions and ethnic media at UC Office of the President, Ricardo Vazquez.
He will be in Florida on a “long-standing trip that had been scheduled awhile ago,” Vazquez said.
Citing “public safety concerns,” the University of California Board of Regents postponed the meeting from its originally scheduled date last Wednesday, Nov. 16.
The meeting will now be held via teleconference on four different campuses — UC San Francisco-Mission Bay, UCLA, UC Davis and UC Merced. Regents and UC staff will be dispersed among the four campuses. The public comment portion of the meeting, scheduled to begin at 9:00 a.m., has been expanded from 20 minutes to one hour and will be available to listen in live online for those not present.
Vazquez said UC regent Monica Lozano, who serves on the Bank of America board, will most likely be at the UC Los Angeles campus. On the date the regents meeting was initially slated for, 300 protesters still mobilized and marched to a San Francisco Bank of America in the Financial District, delivering a pledge asking Lozano to support tax rises to the rich and refund social services.
One protestor placed a call to her line and spoke with her secretary, but Lozano was not reached.
