All of Baltimore's public universities have a long history of simply being TEAM GLOBAL IVY LEAGUE and global markets-----graduating students to be MERCHANTS OF VENICE instead of being strong citizens with strong local communities.
THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE AS WE STOP MOVING FORWARD.
While all of MOVING FORWARD speeds ahead----here is University of Baltimore pretending UNITED NATIONS' BLACK LIVES MATTER AND NFL STARS TO THE GLOBAL 1% are more important than STOPPING MOVING FORWARD.
OPEN SOCIETY IS A FAR-RIGHT WING UNITED NATIONS ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE NGO FUNDED BY BILLIONAIRES TO INSTALL FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES FOR ONLY THE GLOBAL 1%....SOROS IS NOT LEFT FOR GOODNESS SAKE!
It is not that any US university would not allow OPEN SOCIETY to talk on campus---it is that a rebuttal should accompany these discussions allowing students and citizens to understand GOALS OF OPEN SOCIETY and how they are only working to kill 99% of WE THE PEOPLE black, white, and brown citizens.
Call us skeptical ----------to have a DEVOS-------business management programs leader speaking against injustice------now think------who is funding university sports in southern states? Global corporations and who is DE VOS? Married to GLOBAL MERCENARY MILITARY BLACKWATER/XE.........................this coming from our LOCAL public university.

The controversies around Colin Kaepernick and widespread protests in the NFL have brought to the surface ever-present tensions, often ignored or glossed over, about the role race plays in sports. We’ll examine those tensions and how to build on them with a truly remarkable panel:
Kevin Merida, the founder of The Undefeated, ESPN’s platform for discussions of race, sports, and culture;
Tanisha Wright, a 12-year WNBA veteran, now an assistant coach at the University of Charlotte, who led her New York Liberty teammates in protests supporting the Black Lives Matter movement;
John Angelos, executive vice president of the Baltimore Orioles, who was outspoken after the death of Freddie Gray and the recent NFL protests.

REAL LEFT social progressives have NEVER been against global markets-----we are FREE MARKET ----there has never been FREE MARKET in Baltimore because all public universities are tied to being ACCESSORIES to global IVY LEAGUE universities and global 1% instead of building strong community leaders wanting nothing more than build and strengthen local economies with small businesses and manufacturing. What University of Baltimore did along with local high schools these few decades is hook 99% of Baltimore citizens to EX-PAT overseas employment. This left all our surrounding communities to decay---all Baltimore citizens who could have been working in those small business economies left long-term unemployed ---and this created the BLACK MARKET ECONOMY taking Baltimore to heights of drugs and violence.
Seriously folks-----our local public universities have THAT MUCH POWER to HOLD POWER ACCOUNTABLE if they are led by 99% LEADERS----and not 5% FOLLOWER PLAYERS.
So, our University of Baltimore was left to languish these few decades not being the LEADER but tied to the apron-strings of global 1%. These several years of OBAMA all this was super-sized as SCHMOKE became leader----U of B became team MOVING FORWARD GLOBAL CORPORATE CAMPUS GLOBAL LABOR POOL----forget about 99% of US WE THE PEOPLE.
REMEMBER, global Wall Street 1% declared back in 2009 after first massive global banking fraud that the ME GENERATION was over. The ME GENERATION are those 5% SHOW ME THE MONEY----and it was these US TREASURY/MUNICIPAL BOND FRAUDS these several years being the last of ROBBER BARON PERIOD. Our local public universities were good at providing 5% PLAYERS -----its time for our local public universities to serve ALL 99% OF BLACK, WHITE, AND BROWN CITIZENS by STOPPING MOVING FORWARD.
UB is STILL being allowed to produce ALT RIGHT ALT LEFT ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE Clinton/Bush/Obama propaganda and no doubt will lead in the pretend MARXISM sold as left when it is far-right wing, authoritarian, militaristic, extreme wealth extreme poverty LIBERTARIAN MARXISM.

Here is our local public university that should be a strong advocate for 99% of WE THE PEOPLE in Baltimore and somehow the leadership is always tied to GLOBAL 1% CORPORATIONS. Bogomolny working for GLOBAL PHARMA and 5G -----would not protest global corporate campuses keeping Baltimore's economy deliberately stagnant----with super-high unemployment -----with decaying communities and no local economy -------he would be right in there moving trillions of dollars in local tax revenue from all that is public to expanding global corporate profits.
While Bogomolny worked to do that in private sector-----Baltimore Mayor SCHMOKE did that as a 5% global Wall Street pol-----MOVING FORWARD REAGAN'S NEO-LIBERALISM locally including CORPORATIZATION OF OUR PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES.
Robert L. Bogomolny
Former Board Member at EMCORE
On the quest for better performance, EMCORE pioneered linear fiber optic transmission technology and today we make the products that are transforming the internet. Prior to that, he served as Corporate Senior Vice President and General Counsel of G.D. Searle & Company, a pharmaceuticals manufacturer, from 1987 to 2001.
- Office of the President
Schmoke is a believer in Baltimore and a big believer in UB. His message to the University community, its friends and supporters is this: Education works—for people, for neighborhoods, for society as a whole.
“It has been clear to me for many years that next to my parents, it was the education I received that has had the most profound effect on the achievements that I have made in my adult and professional life,” he wrote in a 2007 editorial in The Journal of Negro Education. “The interaction between family and teachers was significant, sustained and life altering.”
Schmoke served as the mayor of Baltimore from 1987-1999 and was the Baltimore City State’s Attorney from 1982-1987. Prior to joining UB, he was dean of the Howard University School of Law in Washington, D.C., from 2003-2012. Following that, he was appointed general counsel for Howard and also served as the institution’s interim provost.
SCHMOKE AS O'MALLEY were the REAGAN/CLINTON team locally killing our Baltimore public K-12 and public universities MOVING FORWARD corporate education ----and what should have been and needs to be our strong 99% voice in public policy now has SCHMOKE as a leader.
We see our University of Baltimore students were APPALLED that SCHMOKE topped his list of speakers with the DEVOS------first as Trump's Education agent-----and then trying to have DeVos represented in this current justice event.
THIS IS DEEPLY CONCERNING AND INAPPROPRIATE ----WE NEED TO GET RID OF ALL GLOBAL 1% POLS AND PLAYERS FROM OUR PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES.
So, this is why a LAPCHICK pretending to care about JUSTICE OF ANY KIND tied to DEVOS-----cancels.
'Richard Lapchick, who was previously schedueld to appear, is no longer able to participate. We apologize for the inconvenience'.
SCHMOKE as NAPALITANO of California's public university system have no background in education---they have to be schooled as to what US public education has as a goal.
Petitioning President of the University of Baltimore Kurt Schmoke
The University of Baltimore student body does not want Betsy DeVos as Commencement speaker
Kristen Mack Baltimore, MD
Betsy DeVos has been invited (and has now accepted) to deliver University of Baltimore's Fall 2017 Commencement speech. This decision was not made in any way by the faculty, student government, or the student body as a whole. Invitations to speak were extended solely by the University President, Kurt Schmoke. The SGA was not even made aware of her involvement until 9/7/17. This is unacceptable. This is not what UB students want. The overwhelming majority of UB students and alumni, as well as the Baltimore community in general are appalled at this decision. UB is a place that supports social justice and equality, and students consistently fight for what is right in the Baltimore community.
Regardless of anyone’s political views, it is the obligation of University Administrators and Faculty to take into account and show respect for the monumental efforts of our graduates, and to facilitate an inclusive, empowering graduation ceremony. Inviting an individual that has caused, is causing, and has potential to continue to cause direct harm to students at this school shows clear disregard for the safety and well-being of students. Further, it creates an implicit endorsement of policies that can and will have a lasting negative impact on the very graduates this ceremony is supposed to celebrate. Ms. DeVos seems to go against the very core of so many of UB's values and makes our mission statement look to be a mockery. We can't send consistent letters of support and inclusiveness to the student body and yet at the same time sell ourselves so short. How is this support for students who have been negatively affected and further marginalized by the statements and policies of Secretary DeVos? We oppose any individual speaking at our commencement who does not celebrate and uplift each and every one of our graduates. The selection process should be transparent with current student leaders, but even if scheduling makes this difficult the selection is in very bad taste.
By signing this petition, we are putting the University of Baltimore on notice that no future or current alumni will donate any money to the university if they decide to keep this decision to bring her as the commencement speaker.
Invite her to a debate or something, literally any other event besides commencement - the one event that should be all about the students.
This petition will be delivered to:
- President of the University of Baltimore
- University of Baltimore Administration
We have the same happening on West Coast as our once strongest public university tied to REAL LEFT SOCIAL PROGRESSIVE labor and justice was taken by REAGAN to corporate campuses-----with today's NAPALITANO of HOMELAND SECURITY being that BLACKWATER/XE our former Mayor Schmoke is------
This southern California university would be similar to our University of Baltimore----this is extreme wealth extreme poverty in California. If we research Christopher Newfield ---he is one of the strongest academic voices on the assault of our public universities and the voice of how to fix our public universities. He graduates from CORNELL-----one cannot be more global 1% ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE then global hedge fund IVY LEAGUE CORNELL----unless you are YALE as our MAYOR SCHMOKE is------tied to our very valuable local public universities.
'Cornell University (/kɔːrˈnɛl/ kor-NEL) is a private and statutory Ivy League research university located in Ithaca, New York'.
So, Newfield is being made our NEXT POPULIST PUBLIC EDUCATION LEADER----telling 99% OF WE THE PEOPLE what we need to do to rebuild strong public universities. Remember, California has these few decades of REAGAN CORPORATE APPOINTMENTS making sure only 5% players are hired as professors.
WE WOULD NOT LOOK HERE FOR REAL LEFT SOCIAL PROGRESSIVE DISCUSSIONS OF REBUILDING US BROAD, HUMANITIES-BASED PUBLIC EDUCATION.
Unmaking the Public University
The Forty-Year Assault on the Middle Class
$24.50 • £19.95 • €22.00
Publication: April 2011
An essential American dream—equal access to higher education—was becoming a reality with the GI Bill and civil rights movements after World War II. But this vital American promise has been broken. Christopher Newfield argues that the financial and political crises of public universities are not the result of economic downturns or of ultimately valuable restructuring, but of a conservative campaign to end public education’s democratizing influence on American society. Unmaking the Public University is the story of how conservatives have maligned and restructured public universities, deceiving the public to serve their own ends. It is a deep and revealing analysis that is long overdue.
Newfield carefully describes how this campaign operated, using extensive research into public university archives. He launches the story with the expansive vision of an equitable and creative America that emerged from the post-war boom in college access, and traces the gradual emergence of the anti-egalitarian “corporate university,” practices that ranged from racial policies to research budgeting. Newfield shows that the culture wars have actually been an economic war that a conservative coalition in business, government, and academia have waged on that economically necessary but often independent group, the college-educated middle class. Newfield’s research exposes the crucial fact that the culture wars have functioned as a kind of neutron bomb, one that pulverizes the social and culture claims of college grads while leaving their technical expertise untouched. Unmaking the Public University incisively sets the record straight, describing a forty-year economic war waged on the college-educated public, and awakening us to a vision of social development shared by scientists and humanists alike.
Christopher Newfield is a professor in the English Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He received his PhD in American literature from Cornell University in 1988,
4. University of Southern California — 16-----
this stat shows how USC ----the neighbor to UC Santa Barbara is home to 16 billionaire graduates---so this area is very captured by this money.
So, we have NO REAL ACADEMIC WRITING on rebuilding what was strongest in world history US public education system.
Higher education ‘in crisis,’ California professor says in lecture
By Madison Obermeyer
Nov 3, 2017
A professor from the University of California, Santa Barbara gave a public talk on the framework of public higher education in Regnier Hall on Thursday.
The lecture, titled “What Do Universities Do?: Paths Out of the Continuing Crisis,”
traced key current problems in higher education and discussed how a full recovery would work and how voters can benefit from affordable higher education.
Christopher Newfield, a professor of literature and American studies at UCSB, lectured on how higher education continues to be reshaped by social and economic forces. Newfield’s lecture was sponsored by the Department of English and its graduate track in cultural studies.Newfield began by painting a general picture of higher education’s “plight.”
“One message today is all public universities are unhappy in the same way,” Newfield said. “We face the same problems across the U.S. We’re in this together.”
Newfield said if we can create a conversation about the status of higher education, we will have public support that goes beyond the sports teams that universities are most often celebrated for.
“The path out has short-term strategies, but I think there’s a long-term path we may have to forge,” Newfield said. “It involves explaining to ourselves and also to the public what universities do. We are obligated to become responsible for how the shape of the future university looks.”
Following cuts to higher education funding and tuition hikes, Newfield said the premise of the current situation is that the state will not fund buildings, people or salaries because, while the market term “public” is associated with welfare, the term “private” is associated with hustle.
Newfield said the market consensus shows that adding private funds — and discipline — improves public institutions.
“Markets discriminate on the basis of price,” Newfield said. “That’s the point of them: you get what you pay for. Universities are not private goods. We must not treat them as such, or else we will screw them up.”
Downplaying the university’s public good status, or consenting to privatization, wrecks the university and lowers its social value, Newfield said. Privatization does not support a public good partnership between the university and society — it blocks it.
“People say it’s okay that we have high tuition because now we have high financial aid,” Newfield said. “The problem with this argument is that it’s not actually true. Universities call loans financial aid as much as they call grants financial aid. They don’t know that the financial aid students are receiving is a loan with a 6.7 percent interest rate.”
Newfield said the U.S. is the only wealthy country that has reduced the educational attainment of one generation compared to that of their parents.
“We’re doing a really dumb thing,” Newfield said.
Moreover, Newfield continued, the idea that increased productivity leads to increased hourly compensation is not ringing true. This problem was once suffered only by blue-collar workers — it is now extending to college graduates.
In addition to outlining the problems plaguing higher education, Newfield introduced possible paths to recovery.
“We can’t just keep patching up the framework we have,” Newfield said. “Universities are around to create original and disseminate confirmed knowledge … in the context of an always-evolving professional practice for the full democratization of intelligence.”
Newfield said there is nothing original about the 21st-century skills students should be receiving at college. However, not everyone is receiving that same opportunity.
The best way to decrease educational attainment for people of color and minorities is to take them out of traditional courses and place them in online classes, Newfield said.
“The problem is we’re not doing it at scale,” Newfield said. “We’re doing it at Stanford. We’re doing it at Princeton, writing junior papers, writing senior theses to graduate. We are not doing it for the people who really matter in this country, for the regular folks that are going at scale to public universities — the other 95 percent that doesn’t go to those places.”
Newfield said the conversation starts by going back to the state.
“There is no substitute for the state,” Newfield said. “That’s the ugly conversation we’re going to have to have. It’s facing the music. We’ve tried everything out, and we’ll eventually try the only thing that works. It would just be better if we could do it sooner rather than later.”
Newfield said the key to pulling higher education out of the state that it is currently in is teamwork.
“There’s going to be a lot of disappointment and anger, but we can do it if we do it together,” Newfield said. “It’s not going to be easy, but it will be a hell of a lot easier than what we’re doing now.”
How University of Baltimore was folded into University of Maryland system is the question---it is too much consolidation of power to every single public university in Maryland. Chancellor Kirwan is UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND COLLEGE PARK-----seeing itself as that global 1% public IVY LEAGUE corporate university---and not a public 99% WE THE PEOPLE 4 year university. Governor of Maryland O'Malley appointed a ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE CORPORATE EDUCATION leader----who then appointed SCHMOKE as head of University of Baltimore.
This university is very, very, very valuable as a counter to global hedge fund IVY LEAGUE Johns Hopkins ----IT MUST WORK FOR THE 99% OF Baltimore citizens. First, it needs to be disconnected from U of M system----second it needs to be fully funded by BALTIMORE TAX REVENUE-----
It seems YALE with Johns Hopkins makes this selection team very, very, very, very far-right wing, authoritarian, militaristic, extreme wealth extreme poverty ----LIBERTARIAN MARXISM. Everyone on this selection board was of course global 1% corporate----and choosing a YALE SKULL AND BONES OLD WORLD MERCHANTS OF VENICE freemason like Schmoke was expected. Remember, all of Baltimore's politiicians these decades have been called DEMOCRATS---as they were far-right wing.
University of Baltimore was BUSH-WACKED.
These global 1% associations are happening in all US CITIES DEEMED FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES......GET RID OF ALL 5% PLAYERS.
Chancellor Kirwan Appoints University of Baltimore

Adelphi, Md. (Nov. 6, 2013) -- William E. Kirwan, chancellor of the University System of Maryland (USM), today announced the appointment of the search and screening committee for the president of the University of Baltimore (UB), one of the university system's 12 institutions.
Robert L. Bogomolny announced in September that he will step down as president of UB at the end of the academic year.
The chair of the search and screening committee is Marie Van Deusen '89, a senior vice president with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney and longtime member of the UB Foundation Board of Directors.
The other members of the committee are:
Laura Koppes Bryan, Dean of the Yale Gordon College of Arts & Sciences
Sydney Comitz '15, Student Government Association (Junior, Business Administration major)
Daniel Gerlowski, UB Faculty Senate; Professor of Economics, Merrick School of Business;
Lenneal Henderson, Distinguished Professor, School of Public & International Affairs
Sasha Hudson, UB Staff Senate; Associate Comptroller
David Jaros, Assistant Professor, School of Law
James Nolan '74, UB Foundation; Managing Partner at Council, Baradel, Kosmerl & Nolan
Jeffrey Sawyer, Professor, Division of Legal, Ethical & Historical Studies in the Yale Gordon College of Arts & Sciences
Christine Spencer, UB Faculty Senate; Associate Professor, School of Health & Human Services and School of Public & International Affairs
Alicia Tatum, Student Government Association; Graduate Student, Legal & Ethical Studies
Liaison to the USM Board of Regents, Thomas Slater '81, USM Regent and Principal Partner, Slater & Slater
Liaison to the Office of the USM Chancellor, Katie Ryan, Senior Adviser to the Chancellor
Staff to the Committee: Susan Schubert, UB Office of the President
Kirwan anticipates that the search process will be completed within six months. The committee's work will conclude with its recommendation of finalists for consideration by the chancellor and the USM Board of Regents. The board will make the final selection.
"President Bogomolny has left a legacy that will make a strong, positive difference in the years ahead both for the University of Baltimore and in the city of Baltimore itself," Kirwan said. "I am very pleased with the breadth of experience of the search committee members and their dedicated commitment to the university."
Baltimore is unusual in the number of colleges in place for centuries------it is an old-world college town. It is harder for 99% of citizens in Baltimore to STOP MOVING FORWARD with strong local public universities because of this COLLEGETOWN STRUCTURE.
The gorilla-in-the-room university control is JOHNS HOPKINS-----LOYOLA------U OF MARYLAND COLLEGE PARK.
Our Historically Black Colleges teamed with global 1% IVY LEAGUES rather than serving the 99% of black citizens so they are team global 1%. We have University of Baltimore having NO POWER amid what are all private colleges tied to OLD WORLD MERCHANTS OF VENICE. Our Baltimore County 99% of citizens who are fighting corporatization of their K-12 public schools better look closely at how their county public universities will be controlled by these same GORILLA-IN-THE-ROOM private universities-------

When we discuss our public universities in Baltimore we always say---the goal is to enfold all public universities into global hedge fund IVY LEAGUE Johns Hopkins----LOYOLA is an OLD WORLD MERCHANTS OF VENICE GLOBAL 1% CATHOLIC FREEMASON university which is tag-team with Hopkins.
ALL CONSOLIDATION CREATES MONOPOLY-----OUR PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES SHOULD NOT BE ENFOLDED INTO NGOS HAVING A GOAL OF PRIVATIZATION.
There is NO BENEFIT to University of Baltimore---or Baltimore Counties public universities to be members of BCN---they are simply being led by the NOSE. We support our smaller private liberal arts colleges which are as vulnerable in this consolidation.
We have no doubt these same associations are occurring in all US cities deemed Foreign Economic Zones----and it is killing 99% WE THE PEOPLE and the TOP ISSUE of quality public education.

University of Maryland Joins Network of Colleges and Universities Serving the Baltimore Region
September 13, 2017
BALTIMORE and COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The University of Maryland announced today that it will become the latest member of the Baltimore Collegetown Network (BCN), a consortium of 14 colleges and universities dedicated to attracting, engaging and retaining students in an effort to raise the region’s profile as a great college town. Joining BCN highlights the University’s commitment to the Baltimore area, serving as one more link between the two regions.
BCN, incorporated in 1999, boasts programming created to enhance the Baltimore college experience by improving the academic and social lives of students in the region, while encouraging community engagement and collaboration among its members. This announcement comes on the heels of the University of Maryland Strategic Partnership Act of 2016, which formalized the MPowering the State partnership established in 2012 between UMD and the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) to achieve innovation and impact in Maryland.
“The University of Maryland joins a network of institutions committed to Baltimore and I welcome their partnership. The collective strength of our students, programs and leaders raises the visibility of Baltimore as a higher education hub. I look forward to working together to help our city, region, and state thrive," said Kristen Campbell McGuire, executive director of BCN.
The network’s signature effort, BCN Leadershape, unites students from the different campuses and sets them on a path of civic leadership in Baltimore through an intensive year-long program. Other notable programs are the Collegetown Shuttle, which transports students between six campuses and area destinations, and the Baltimore Student Exchange Program, which allows students to take classes at any campus in the network.
“The University of Maryland is very excited to join the Baltimore Collegetown Network,” said Vice President for Student Affairs and BCN Governing Board Representative, Linda Clement. “As we strengthen our relationships between College Park and Baltimore, this consortium will provide an exceptional opportunity for the University of Maryland and the colleges in Baltimore to work more closely together on a wide variety of initiatives.”
UMD becomes the first new member in nine years. Founding network members include Coppin State University, Goucher College, Johns Hopkins University, Loyola University Maryland, Maryland Institute College of Art, Morgan State University, Notre Dame of Maryland University, Stevenson University, Towson University, University of Baltimore, University of Maryland Baltimore and University of Maryland Baltimore County. The Community College of Baltimore County joined the network in 2008, following a bylaw change that granted admittance to two-year institutions.
Napolitano was of course HOMELAND SECURITY as militarized policing filled US cities and towns. She is BFF with Prince and Blackwater/XE as global mercenary military corporations tied to training our US city police and build FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONE surveillance, policing, and security-----MS DEEP, DEEP STATE REALLY DEEP STATE goes Chancellor of our biggest and once strongest public university system installed by the same global 1% Clinton neo-liberal as MARYLAND'S O'MALLEY----CA Gov Brown.
This is from where all the ALT RIGHT ALT LEFT PRETEND US CIVIL UNREST is led-----as too in Baltimore for this same reason.
Again, it is harder to separate our state universities from these global 1% leaders----but students should be protesting these university leaders and not marching against A TRUMP----please look locally at our county public universities for the first stage of reclaiming our public higher education. Our community colleges are well on the way to being that VOCATIONAL K-CAREER APPRENTICESHIP structures---our local 4 year universities are critical ----MAKE THEM TEAM 99% OF WE THE PEOPLE!
Janet Napolitano, Homeland Security chief, to head UC
July 12, 2013|By Larry Gordon
Janet Napolitano, the U.S. secretary of Homeland Security and former governor of Arizona, is being named as the next president of the University of California system, in an unusual choice that brings a national-level politician to a position usually held by an academic, The Times has learned. Her appointment also means the 10-campus system will be headed by a woman for the first time in its 145-year history.
Napolitano’s nomination by a committee of UC regents came after a secretive process that insiders said focused on her early as a high-profile, although untraditional, candidate who has led large public agencies and shown a strong interest in improving education.
UC officials believe that her Cabinet experiences –- which include helping to lead responses to hurricanes and tornadoes and overseeing some anti-terrorism measures -- will help UC administer its federal energy and nuclear weapons labs and aid its federally funded research in medicine and other areas.
“While some may consider her to be an unconventional choice, Secretary Napolitano is without a doubt the right person at the right time to lead this incredible university," Sherry Lansing, the regent and former film industry executive who headed the search committee, said in a statement being released Friday. "She will bring fresh eyes and a new sensibility -- not only to UC, but to all of California. She will stand as a vigorous advocate for faculty, students and staff at a time when great changes in our state, and across the globe, are presenting as many opportunities as challenges.”
Napolitano, who is a Democrat, was appointed by former President Clinton as the U.S. attorney in Arizona and then won elections as state attorney general and twice as governor, a position she held from 2003 to 2009. President Obama then named her to lead Homeland Security, an agency with an annual $60-billion budget and 240,000 employees.
She has been a strong voice in favor of immigration reform that would provide a path to citizenship for those in the country illegally, a stance that has angered some Republicans who contend she has not done enough to secure the nation’s borders.
TALK BACK: Is Janet Napolitano a good choice for UC president?
A source close to Napolitano, who asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly, said that Napolitano deliberated for a long time after the executive search firm hired by UC quietly contacted her.
“I think she loves working for President Obama and serving the American people, but at the same time, this is a unique opportunity,” he said. Napolitano knows “UC is probably the premier institution in the country. She is motivated by the fact that being a part of UC, she will be a part of educating future leaders of tomorrow and be part of a state that sets so much of the agenda nationally.”
Napolitano, 55, is no stranger to California colleges since she attended Santa Clara University and was its first woman valedictorian before earning her law degree at University of Virginia. Her father was dean of the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, a family connection that UC regents also liked since they oversee medical centers. In Arizona, she helped to enact plans to provide full-day kindergarten and to renovate university buildings, winning fans among educators.
The Napolitano friend insisted that nothing was pushing her out of Washington now, although the Senate’s recently approved compromise plan on immigration faces an uncertain fate in the Republican-controlled House.
REACTION: Obama lauds UC's choice of Napolitano
The secretary faced some controversy in Congress when critics alleged the Boston Marathon bombings, reportedly perpetrated by ethnic Chechens from Russia who had been granted political asylum, exposed shortcomings in security.
The UC regents are expected to approve her nomination as UC’s 20th president on Thursday during a meeting in San Francisco. Napolitano is expected to take up the UC reins some time in September, officials said.
UC has an annual budget of $24 billion, 230,000 students, 191,000 faculty and staff, five medical centers and three national laboratories.
Her proposed salary has not been released, pending discussions among the regents. But since her Cabinet salary of about $200,000 is about a third of the annual $591,000 that current UC president Mark G. Yudof makes, the regents presumably will be able to avoid a potential furor and not feel pressured to give her a big pay raise over Yudof’s.
As our University of Baltimore students protested DEVOS----they should be protesting SCHMOKE as these students KNEW to protest NAPALITANO-----our 99% are working hard----our young adults know we need to STOP MOVING FORWARD---they want our strong public 4 year universities to remain strong for the 99%-----please support our young adults by being those 99% VS 1% black, white, and brown citizens fighting for our VITAL PUBLIC EDUCATION SYSTEM.
Students Erupt In Protest As Janet Napolitano Becomes President Of University Of California
- Jul. 18, 2013, 6:16 PM
Several students were forcibly removed from a meeting room at the University of California at San Francisco as the Board of Regents approved Napolitano to head the sprawling UC system at a salary of $570,000 per year.
The demonstrators, angry over Napolitano's immigration policies as Homeland Security chief, shouted "undocumented is not a crime!" as they were handcuffed by campus police and led from the room, briefly halting the hearing.
Some two dozen people had yelled "Shame! Shame! Shame!" during a public comment portion of the meeting. Others gathered outside to protest against Napolitano's approval of immigration issues and her lack of experience in education.
Napolitano becomes the first woman president in the 145-year history of the University of California, which has long been regarded as one of the top U.S. public university systems but which has been battered by nearly two decades of boom-and-bust funding, leading to tuition increases and classroom shortages.
"We all feel extremely excited about this as she brings fresh eyes to the UC system," Regent Sherry Lansing said before the vote. "She's had a lifetime of public service ... I think education is actually in her DNA."
Napolitano, a former two-term Arizona governor and Democrat, has been a lightning rod in the Obama administration for criticism by conservatives, who have accused her most recently of being soft on border control and immigration issues.
Latino leaders, meanwhile, have blasted Napolitano over immigration sweeps that led to large-scale detention and deportations involving undocumented immigrants.
"Janet Napolitano isn't qualified at all to be UC president, her background is in law and immigration enforcement. It worries me as an undocumented student to have a UC President who has put terror into my family," said demonstrator Rosa Hernandez, a 21-year-old student at the University of California at Berkeley.
Napolitano has acknowledged she was not a typical candidate and said she would meet with faculty, students, politicians and others to learn about the system.
"Whether preparing to govern a state or to lead an agency as critical and complex as Homeland Security, I have found the best way to start is simply to listen," said Napolitano, a lawyer by training.
