Term Lengths Thread

How long should people serve in the top offices running the UC?

Short-terms might help enable changing officers who aren't up to the task, but longer terms can help people develop the experience, contacts and knowledge to get things done.

The Regents were originally appointed to 16-year terms. In the reforms of 1970s, terms were reduced to 12 years.

Should we reduce terms to 4 years to coincide with election cycles? Or would 6-years (as in the US Senate) be better?
