Citing health reasons, the president of the University of California, Mark Yudof, said Friday that he would step down at the end of August. Mr. Yudof, who has overseen the 10-college system for five years, said he would teach law at the University of California, Berkeley. Mr. Yudof said that the series of budget cuts the system had faced seemed to be ending. "We are not fully in the clear, but we are much closer than we were even a few months ago," he said. In the state budget proposed last week, the system received $250 million more than last year.
