The UC Board of Regents this week voted to renovate the Blake House, a now empty Bay Area mansion that has traditionally been home the UC president. The group approved the budget for $620,000. 

UC Regents are meeting this week, as President Mark Yudof departs after five turbulent years. The California Report's Ana Tintocalis looks back on his tenure, beginning with a visit to the UC Berkeley campus.
