"USC kept Puliafito on the medical school faculty... He also is a central witness in a $185-million lawsuit in which the University of California has accused USC of misconduct in its hiring away of a star researcher."

See:
http://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-usc-doctor-20170717-htmlstory.html
Includes:
"Key to Keck’s rise in stature was Puliafito’s ability to headhunt the type of big-name researchers who brought grant money and prestige. He recruited more than 70 professors to Keck, according to a campus publication.

One of those coups was under intense scrutiny at the time of Puliafito’s resignation. In a court battle that is still playing out, the University of California filed suit in July 2015 against USC over its poaching of a leading Alzheimer’s disease researcher.

Puliafito was the self-described “quarterback” of efforts to land UC San Diego professor Paul Aisen, a star in the state university system.

Curing Alzheimer’s is a top priority for government agencies and pharmaceutical companies, and Aisen’s lab was overseeing groundbreaking research, including drug trials at 70 locations around the world. More than $340 million in funding was expected to flow to his lab, according to court records.

UC contended in its suit that its private school rival went beyond the bounds of academic recruiting by targeting professors and labs based on grant funding. The suit accused USC of civil conspiracy, aiding and abetting breach of fiduciary duty and other misconduct.

USC denied any wrongdoing and countersued for defamation and other claims. At the time Puliafito stepped down, UC had yet to question him under oath.

A UC lawyer deposed the former dean in September 2016, and asked about his resignation. A USC attorney objected to the question as “vague” and “overbroad.” Puliafito ultimately answered that he had a “unique opportunity” to work in private industry and that he was on sabbatical from his faculty position."

"The real difference between the US and British systems is that Great Britain can still easily fix its higher education mistake. Instead of tweaking interest rates or income repayment thresholds, it should cut tuition to zero, replace all lost revenue with teaching grants, restore maintenance grants, and buy down the £100m in student debt.

Coverage of UC Regents July Meeting


During the UC Regents board session on : Thursday Regent Makarechian seemed to claim responsibility for submitting and posting of that controversial F7 item- which was partially pulled from the regents agenda prior to the meeting. Regent M said he placed it on the agenda, as an action item right off the bat no less, in order for the regents to " make the Governor and the CA Leg pay attention"-- but no one explained the reason the item on student athletes welfare was pulled...
The final item UC Regents discussed in the last hour of the Thursday session was : UC PATH and it seems there's some revisionist history that was at play , so that's a 'don't miss' section of the meeting...

Some of the coverage from this month's meeting:
UC Board of Regents passes budget, debates new HR program
http://www.dailycal.org/2017/07/13/uc-board-regents-passes-budget-debates-new-hr-program/

describing UC PATH like this:..."Regents also discussed the UCPath program, which aims to institute a streamlined administrative system for UC employee payroll and human resources to replace the 11 separate systems currently in place. According to UCPath presenters, the program was designed to decrease costs.

In 2015, UCPath assumed responsibility for UCOP salaries, a total of about 1,800 employees — the first major test and implementation of the program.

The cost of the program drew criticism from several board members. In reference to the program’s goal of reducing costs, one regent asked, “Where are those savings?” Another expressed similar concern, remarking that “it looks like we’ve gone from UCPath to the long and winding road.”

Supporters of the program argued that the bulk of the cost is in the initial development.

UC President Janet Napolitano supported the program, stating at the meeting that she believes it is on track and “will be an essential part of the structural governance of the university.”"

-And this accurate?: "The program’s forecasted cost is about $500 million. As of May 31, the actual costs were already more than $300 million."

The program’s forecasted cost is about $500 million. " - was that the forecast when the project launched?

UC Regents Approve President's Budget, Question Constitutionality of Legislative Control
https://ww2.kqed.org/news/2017/07/13/uc-regents-approve-presidents-budget-question-constitutionality-of-legislative-control/
..."Kieffer said the university has asked outside counsel to weigh in on the constitutionality of the move. The change is authorized only for one year, but Los Angeles state Sen. Ed Hernandez has introduced a constitutional amendment that would enshrine stricter legislative control over the UC system in the state’s constitution.

Kieffer said the university brought some of these issues on itself with its previous lax budget practices and that it must communicate better with state lawmakers to improve things.

“I hope by doing our jobs right, this will be a onetime occurrence,” Kieffer said. “Because if it’s not, we’ve got a problem.”

In wake of critical audit, UC regents take a close look at president's budget
http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-uc-regents-budget-20170713-story.html



"...The regents also voiced concern over the directive from Gov. Jerry Brown and the Legislature for UC to enroll 1,500 more California undergraduates in 2018-19 — without any guarantee of how much the state would chip in to cover the additional per-student cost of enrollment.

Napolitano called that directive “fairly astonishing,” but said the state has asked UC to identify plans to pay for that growth by December.

In the end, the regents unanimously approved Napolitano’s budget and praised the staff for its clear and detailed presentation.

“This is miles from what we’ve ever seen before,” regent John A. Pérez said.

In other action Thursday, the regents approved a proposal to allow all campuses to invite letters of recommendation for up to 15% of applicants in cases where more information is needed to make an admissions decision."
