Breaking: University of California President Mark Yudof Is Stepping Down

Whoaaa: Mark Yudof, who has served as President of the University of California system for the last four and a half years, will step down August 31 due to “taxing” health problems, according to a statement. The legal scholar, former University of Texas chancellor, and Little Monster presided over the ten-campus UC system during an inarguably tumultuous period that included widespread student protests, a budget crisis, and massive tuition and fee hikes. According again to the statement, once he steps down he will begin a hopefully-less-stressful job teaching law at UC Berkeley.
