President Yudof reports on budget advocacy progress
Working to combat a steep slide in state support for higher education, UC advocates are planning large rallies in Sacramento this spring to persuade lawmakers that public higher education should be a funding priority.
The UC Student Association on March 1 will hold a rally and press conference at the state Capitol. UC President Mark G. Yudof, along with several UC regents and chancellors, will join student organizers later in the day for meetings with key legislative leaders.
"Our students are a critical voice in delivering our message to Sacramento, and it's great to see them engaging in this way," said Yudof. "We are honoring the wishes of the UCSA leaders and not taking a role in their public rally, but we will be visiting legislative leaders together that day to show our solidarity and to express how much we all care about UC's future."
