    The University of California is saving $32 million a year on energy and remains the leader in higher education for adopting green building standards.

    Those achievements and others are outlined in the 2011 UC Annual Report on Sustainable Practices at the Board of Regents meeting today (Jan. 18) at UC Riverside.

    The UC system added 38 LEED-green certified facilities during 2011 and now has 87, which continues to be the most of any university in the country, according to the annual report.

  • UC cuts administrative costs, seeks new revenue

    The University of California Board of Regents met Wednesday and Thursday (Jan. 18-19) at UC Riverside to discuss savings from cost-cutting and development of new revenue to fill a looming budget gap.

    But discussion of private contributions as a way to bolster student financial aid had to be put off to March after a group of fewer than 20 protesters disrupted the meeting for nearly an hour.

  • A year of protest, progress and a very special prize

    Just as Time magazine named the Protester as its person of the year, so did unrest shape much of 2011 for the University of California.

    Reverberations from January and February's anti-Mubarek protests in Egypt were felt halfway around the world, as UC took emergency measures to evacuate 30 students, faculty and staff enrolled in a study abroad program and taking part in an archaeological dig.
