The 'Promise' of Fewer Californians at UC Davis...

the Aggie has this: "According to Ratliff, the shortfall in the UC Davis budget has caused class sizes to increase. It has also prompted an increase in ladder faculty who are actually teaching classes.

The University has been looking into strategies to fix the budget deficit. The campus plans to try to increase the enrollment of out-of-state and international undergraduate students, as they pay nearly $7,000 more than what in-state students pay per quarter, according to the Student Fees Fact Sheet by Budget and Institutional Analysis."

Daily Cal has this: "The University of California raised more than $1.56 billion in private donations during the 2011-12 fiscal year, a small drop from the $1.59 billion raised in the previous year."
"At UC Berkeley, $410.8 million was raised in the 2011-12 fiscal year, an increase from the $328.8 million raised in the 2010-11 fiscal year, according to the report. The campus raised more than any other in the UC system.

In 2008, the campus began the Campaign for Berkeley, an initiative aimed at bringing in more private money. The campus has to raise around $400 million in the next year to reach its goal of $3 billion by June 2013.

In this fiscal year, the campus completed the Hewlett Challenge, a $113 million matching grant initiated by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation in 2007 to endow 100 new faculty chairs. The challenge was completed in November with all chairs funded, more than two years ahead of schedule.

“The new endowed chairs will be critical in reinforcing the distinction and quality of Berkeley’s world-class faculty and graduate students,” the report states."
