S. Stephen Nakashima, a longtime member of the University of California Board of Regents, has decided to resign from the board because of a stroke he suffered eight months ago. Nakashima's resignation, which is effective immediately, tilts the political balance of the board, which has been dominated by conservatives for more than a decade. The 26-member board has three vacancies to be filled by Gov. Gray Davis, a Democrat.

Stephen Nakashima, a World War II relocation camp survivor and longtime attorney who voted with the conservative majority on the UC Board of Regents that banned affirmative action in UC hiring and admissions in the mid-1990s, has died.

George Deukmejian and was reappointed in 1993 by Gov. Pete Wilson.

With no votes to spare, a restive state Senate on Thursday approved the appointment of wealthy attorney S. Stephen Nakashima, a major contributor to Gov. Pete Wilson's gubernatorial campaign, as a regent of the University of California. The action seemed to signal that other Wilson appointees to higher education governing boards likely will confront intensified demands that they reflect the wide-ranging and changing diversity of California populations.

In the face of student protests, University of California President Jack W. Peltason recommended Thursday that the UC Board of Regents delay approval of a proposed 10% undergraduate fee hike in the hopes that the increase can be avoided. Citing California's improving economy, Peltason told the regents that he planned to urge Gov. Pete Wilson and the state Legislature to appropriate an additional $38 million for the nine-campus system, which has absorbed deep cuts in recent years.

The Senate Rules Committee on Wednesday narrowly approved the appointment of Gov. Pete Wilson's personal attorney to the UC Board of Regents, rejecting opposition that the governor's pick was based on gender, wealth and political connections. A 3-1 vote of the five-member committee sent the appointment of John G. Davies to the full Senate for confirmation, where Senate leader David A. Roberti (D-Van Nuys) forecast Davies probably will be approved later in the month.

Despite passionate pleas that another sharp fee increase will close the University of California's doors to many students, an unusually divided UC Board of Regents voted Friday to raise fees by $995, or 33%, for next fall and to temporarily cut employees' pay by 5%. As a result, average fees for a UC undergraduate who is a California resident will be $4,039 in the 1993-94 school year.
