Briefly

    UC President Richard C. Dynes formed a group to study University of California undergraduate eligibility and admissions issues, which have recently been analyzed by UC Regent John Moores and in several news publications. Dynes has instructed the 17-member Eligibility and Admissions Study Group to advise the Academic Senate and the Board of Regents in March 2004 on eligibility policies and criteria, the implementation of existing regental eligibility and admissions policies, and methods to achieve greater efficiencies in the University of California’s admission policies. These will include ways to communicate clearly to the public information on eligibility criteria, selection practices and admissions policies.

    Dynes will co-chair the group with UC Senior Vice President of University Affairs Bruce B. Darling.

    Other members of the board will include Regents Richard C. Blum, Odessa P. Johnson, John G. Davies, Monica C. Lozano and John Moores; UC Santa Cruz Chancellor M. R. C. Greenwood; UCLA Chancellor Albert Carnesale; UC Academic Council Chair Lawrence Pitts; Board of Admissions and Relations with Schools Chair Barbara A. Sawrey; and UC Provost and Senior Vice President C. Judson King. UC students on the board will include student regent-designate Jodi L. Anderson and UC Student Association Chair Matt Kaczmarek.
