Letter to Budget Conference Committee: Support Assembly Budget

CUCFA sent the following letter to the six members of the legislature’s Budget Conference Committee and their Chiefs of Staff.

Item 6440 UC Budget: Support for Assembly version

The Council of UC Faculty Associations (CUCFA) requests your support for the Assembly version of the 2014-15 University of California budget. CUCFA has long advocated for State support for the Master Plan and the excellence of the University. Public higher education is a common good that benefits all the people of California. The Master Plan commits the people of California to provide for their own well being and that of future generations by supporting access, affordability, and quality at the University. The funding that is provided in the Assembly version will better able the University to meet those goals. With funds from the Assembly version, the University will be able to increase the enrollment of California students, hold tuition constant, and restore excellence in areas that were adversely affected by budget cuts during the recession.
