Regents and senior administrators have come in for tough criticism at campus protests in the last year, with many students questioning their priorities. But some of the targets of that criticism are making it known that they will join forces with the protesters when they shift their attention to Sacramento at a planned rally March 4 designed to pressure state officials to provide more support for education at all levels. The San Francisco Chronicle reported that some university leaders are a little uncomfortable about joining forces with the students, but that most believe that the March 4 rally is important and is on issues on which students and administrators agree. Not everyone who has been protesting, however, is impressed. The blog Changing Universities called the regents' interest in joining the rally "a cynical publicity stunt."
