UCLA's undergraduate student government has approved a resolution urging the University of California Regents to divest itself of holdings in industrial and manufacturing firms that the students say contribute to global warming. The Undergraduate Student Affairs Council voted 9-2 on the resolution Tuesday night, marking the first time the council has sought divestment based on an environmental issue.

Bracing for an enormous growth in enrollment, University of California officials on Thursday announced that they would ask the Legislature to pay for year-round operations so more students will enroll during the summer. UC officials want lawmakers in Sacramento to supply an extra $50 million a year to lower student fees and offer faculty incentive pay so the nine-campus system can more than triple the number of students who enroll in summer classes by 2001.

The UC Board of Regents on Friday awarded raises of $20,000 or more to each of its nine campus chancellors and about $40,000 apiece to senior vice presidents, but dropped a proposal to let its staff set salaries of $200,000 or less. The big boost in salaries, on top of a decision earlier this year to sweeten executives' retirement benefits, will add about $20,000 a year to Senior Vice President Wayne Kennedy's $130,000 annual pension when he retires next year.

The UC Board of Regents on Friday decided to eliminate three of its nine meetings each year, but postponed any action on how to handle salaries until next month, so that Gov. Gray Davis can review proposals before the board. "The governor asked that we hold off," said John Davies, chairman of the Board of Regents, adding that he would abide by those wishes as a courtesy to the state's chief executive.

Attempting to recoup millions of dollars spent on legal settlements, the UC Board of Regents voted Friday to sue the doctors who ran the scandal-ridden fertility clinic at UC Irvine.

Balmaceda and Sergio Stone to reimburse them for more than $19 million the university has agreed to pay infertile couples who sought help at the now-defunct Center for Reproductive Health.

The UC Board of Regents today will consider raises of $20,000 or more for each of its nine chancellors and $40,000 apiece for senior vice presidents, all of whom make more than California's governor. Six-figure salaries are always a touchy topic at a public university, which receives an annual infusion of money from state taxpayers. Even so, the regents will also revisit the question of how much they, as defenders of the public purse, should be concerned about such salaries.

The UC Board of Regents on Friday adopted new admissions rules guaranteeing a seat to all students in the top 4% of their high school class, an idea championed by Gov. Gray Davis as a way to admit more minority students in the post-affirmative action era. The full board approved without comment the 4% plan, along with another change that will require all UC-bound students to take a visual- or performing-arts class.
