Adding their voices to a debate that also has engaged media organizations, UCLA's undergraduate student government recently approved a resolution that condemned the use of the term “illegal” when describing  immigrants in the U.S. without legal permission. The so-called “Drop the I-Word” resolution declared, in part, that: "We are aware that certain racially derogatory language used in media, political discourse and other institutional settings has historically bolstered the foundation for racially harmful actions including racial profiling practices, punitive policies targeting socially marginalized groups, hate crimes and violence.” It also said that some students have expressed fears about the appointment of Janet Napolitano as the next UC system president because she helped oversee an expansion of deportations during her recently concluded term as U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security.

State auditors will review UCLA's sexual assault policies and procedures as part of a regular review of four state universities, officials said Monday. State Assemblyman Anthony Rendon (D-Lakewood) requested the audit of UC Berkeley and three other schools in August after he was contacted by an activist. Nine Berkeley students filed a complaint alleging that the school violated provisions of the federal Clery Act, a 1990 law that requires schools to report campus crime statistics to federal authorities.  Two Cal State universities yet to be determined will also be included in the audit.

Update: Senior forward Joevan Catron, Oregon's leading scorer, did not play Thursday against USC because of a calf injury and is questionable for Saturday's game. Howland called the Ducks a tough matchup because of their quick, guard-heavy lineup that mostly plays zone defense.
OPINION

If all philanthropists were required to be morally upright, hospitals would be low on new wings and colleges would be starved for buildings. We'd also be missing a few beloved institutions outright — Stanford and Carnegie Mellon universities are cases in point. Charity is a virtue that should not be off-limits to scoundrels — if, in fact, they are truly giving to an institution rather than tethering their donations with strings that benefit them. Lowell Milken would probably be counted among the less pristine philanthropists, though not among the most scurrilous.
