The public’s University of California harvests family savings, Alumni donations, supporter’s gifts, taxes. Cal. ranked #1 public university total academic cost (in-state) resulting from Provost’s, Chancellor’s ‘charge in-state students higher tuition’: tuition is rising faster than other universities.
Cal ranked # 2 nationally in faculty earning potential. Spending on salaries increased 29% in last six years.
University of California negates the promise of equality of opportunity: access, affordability. Self-absorbed Provost Breslauer Chancellor Birgeneau are outspoken on charging in-state students much higher’ tuition.
Birgeneau ($450,000) Breslauer ($306,000) blame the politicians, since they stopped giving them their entitled funding. The ‘charge in-state students higher tuition’ skyrocketed fees by an average 14% per year from 2006 to 2011 academic years. If they had allowed fees to raise at the same rate of inflation over past 10 years fees would still be in reach of middle income students. Breslauer Birgeneau increase disparities in higher education, defeat the promise of equality of opportunity, and create a less-educated work force.
The sluggish economy, 10% unemployment (third highest in nation) devastates family savings. Simply asking for more taxes (Prop 30, 38) to spend on self-absorbed Cal. leadership, inefficient practices, over-the-top salaries, lavish bonuses, affluent foreign students, is not the answer.
Additional state tax funding must sunset.
UCB charter is to maximize access to the widest number of residence at a reasonable cost. Birgeneau Breslauer’s ‘charge Californians higher tuition’ denies middle income families the transformative value of Cal.
The California dream: keep it alive and well. Cal. leadership must accept responsibility for failing Californians. Fire Provost George W Breslauer. Birgeneau resigned.

Over $1M dollars in administrative, legal expenses etc incurred by University of California senior management to pay the $1M pepper spray settlement. University of California senior management shell out millions for their clueless decisions. Hapless UC senior management wastes millions.
Prop 30, 32 funding will be spent by incompetent UC senior management. It is up to the public to vote no on Prop 30, 32 to keep taxpayer funds from the eminently unwise University of California senior management.
Every qualified California student should get a place in University of California system. That's a desirable goal for a public university. However, UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert Birgeneau displaces Californians qualified for education at Cal. with $50,600 tuition Foreigners.
UC tuition increases exceed the national average rate of increase. The University of California Board Of Regents jeopardizes Californians attending higher education by making UC the most expensive public university in the United States.
Self-serving tuition increases are used by UC President Mark Yudof to increase the pay of 80,000 eligible faculty and others. Payoffs like these point to higher operating costs and still higher tuition for Californians. Instate tuition consumes 14% of Ca. Median Family Income!
I agree that faculty in higher education and senior management, like Yudof and Birgeneau, should consider the students' welfare and put it high on their values.
Deeds unfortunately do not bear out the students' welfare values of campus senior management and the UC Board of Regents.
