Yudof to hold live web chat for faculty, staff

Mark your calendars for a Nov. 2 web chat with UC President Mark Yudof and Staff Advisors to the Regents Kevin Smith and Kathy Barton.
ButtonA central focus of the discussion will be UC’s financial future and how success or failure of Proposition 30, Gov. Jerry Brown’s November ballot initiative, could impact UC.
The live employee web chat will take place on Friday, Nov. 2, noon to 1 p.m. on UStream TV.
The event is an opportunity for all UC faculty and staff to have an open conversation with President Yudof about some of the issues facing the university and its employees.
"With the upcoming election and so many critical issues facing UC and all of higher education," said Smith, who manages financial matters for the Office of the Chancellor at UCLA, "we wanted to give employees a chance to speak directly with President Yudof."
You are encouraged to submit questions during the web cast via UStream (see instructions below), but you may also submit questions directly to the staff advisors via this email link in advance of the event.
