The University of California Board of Regents is scheduled to tackle Gov. Jerry Brown's budget cutting proposal during meetings Wednesday at UC San Diego.
The regents are in the middle of three days of meetings at the La Jolla campus.
Brown has proposed to cut the budgets of the UC and California State University systems by $500 million each to close a fiscal shortfall. The plan needs to be passed by the Legislature.
In response, UC President Mark Yudof ordered the chancellors of UC campuses to come up with plans for meeting budget reduction targets within six weeks.
