Yudof has led the way in further privatization and contracting out of the University including selling off the libraries. Yudof also has helped militarize the university with tens of millions of police/military forces to repress the students and others fighting budget cuts and fee increases.
UC Regen Richard Blum is a leading force for privatizing the university and personally profiting from investments with public pension funds.
