The University of California Board of Regents will hold a virtual special meeting on Tuesday, July 7, at 3:30 p.m. PDT starting with the closed session of the Governance Committee. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting will be conducted entirely as a teleconference and start with public comment.
As we prepare to celebrate a “physically distanced” Independence Day (I do hope you enjoy some safe social connections), I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you a safe and relaxing holiday. I also want to thank you for your dedication, flexibility and commitment to excellence over these past few months of COVID-19 uncertainty and social unrest. We are a strong and vibrant organization and your work collectively contributes to a stronger, better and more resilient California. Many thanks for all you have done, and will do in the future; it is greatly appreciated by many!
Wishing you a happy Fourth of July!
