UC students protest as board holds meeting
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Hundreds of students protested at UC campuses across the state on Monday morning, as board members held a meeting via teleconference.
The meeting was postponed earlier this month because of safety concerns.
The Board of Regents met from four different campuses via teleconference: UCLA, UC Davis, UC San Francisco and UC Merced.
At UCLA, about 100 students protested outside the Alumni Center, chanting, "No cuts, no fees, education should be free." It was loud, but not out of control.
The regents added 45 minutes to the usual 15-minute public comment period at Monday's meeting.
There was a large police presence on campus. No arrests were made Monday.
Some regents and chancellors met with students after the teleconference to hear their concerns, primarily about rising tuition and college fees.
The board's agenda did not include tuition increases Monday.
