The University of California moved its regents meeting due to possible "rogue elements."

The University of California has rescheduled a Board of Regents meeting that was canceled because officials feared planned protests could turn violent.

UC officials said Friday the regents meeting will now be held Monday, Nov. 28, at four sites that will be connected by teleconference.

Regents, university administrators and interested members of the public will attend the meeting at locations on the UCLA, Davis, Merced and San Francisco-Mission Bay campuses. The public comment period will be expanded from the usual 20 minutes to one hour.

The meeting was originally scheduled to be held in at San Francisco campus on Wednesday and Thursday this week. But officials canceled the meeting after law enforcement warned that "rogue elements'' were seeking confrontation with campus police during scheduled student demonstrations
