Money, student athletes and mental health top UC agenda

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Money and the academic performance of student athletes are two of the topics the University of California's governing board will be tackling during a two-day meeting this week.

The Board of Regents is scheduled to meet on Wednesday and Thursday in San Francisco. On Wednesday, Gov. Jerry Brown, and UC President Janet Napolitano are asking their fellow regents to name them as the sole members of a committee that will try to reach a consensus on whether the 10-campus system needs more money from Sacramento to avoid tuition hikes.

The Wednesday agenda also includes a sexual assault briefing and a policy Napolitano recently approved that makes coaches and athletic directors ineligible for bonuses unless their teams maintain a minimum level of academic achievement.

On Thursday, the Regents are to receive an update on UC's efforts to address student mental health.
