    Janet Napolitano was a high profile and unexpected choice to lead the University of California system.

    She had been a politician, not an academic, having served as an attorney general, governor and most recently as Secretary of Homeland Security.

    Napolitano is now four months into her new job as president of UC and facing a big challenge to revive the highly regarded, but battered, state system.
