UC regents confirm student representative

UC student regent-designate Abraham “Avi” Oved, above, addresses the UC regents following his confirmation at the board’s meeting Wednesday in San Francisco.

Groups protested Oved’s alleged financial connections to Adam Milstein, a heavy supporter of pro-Israel groups.

The UC Student Association voted 10-0 to urge regents to postpone Oved’s confirmation.

The board acknowledged the concerns but moved forward with Oved’s nomination with one no vote.
