    The University of California's governing board is set to vote on proposals to cut undergraduate enrollment and limit compensation for top administrators.

    The UC Board of Regents is holding a special meeting in San Francisco on Wednesday to vote on President Mark Yudof's plan to deal with state budget cuts to higher education.

    The plan would reduce systemwide enrollment of new California resident freshmen by 2,300 students in the coming academic year.

    Enrollment of community college students transferring to UC campuses would increase by 500 students, while graduate student levels would remain the same.

    The other proposal would freeze the salaries of 285 top administrators for the remainder of this academic year, as well as the coming year.
