Somewhat Different From The Blue and Gold Plan

there's this:
San Francisco Strip Clubs Recruit College Students In Campus Newspaper Ad
That's a new take on some other (related?) ads that go wwwaayyy back.
Back when it was low fee/no tuition-- the cost of living in Berkeley still/always-- high. The ads for (more lucrative) egg donations -frequently find them at Daily Bruin, too. This archive piece recalls 'frozen treasure' donations.

(btw are the ads mentioned in the HuffPo piece also geared to male students -or, only female students? Multiple revenue streams to pay for college -not necessarily for all?)

$$$$$ that doesn't go to pay for college: can go to plastic surgery? (DC stopped running that after the student op ed - or, they moved/go unnoticed. That ad seemed to be directed at female students as well.)

The messages being sent...

Focus on the ads- or read the content.

Like this latest:
where Chancellor Dirks comments on the embargoed/unreleased campus climate survey results and undergraduate education. He has a task force. He also mentions creating a “Master Plan for the 21st Century”; and tries -like previous Chancellors- to present 'outreach to Europe and Asia' as something 'new'. Rare to see Chancellors at Cal talk in those terms about collaborations with Africa, Central or South America b/c of-why?- money?, risk? interests?
"And, I am well aware that you, UC Berkeley’s students, by virtue of recent tuition hikes, have become the leading revenue source for the campus. Despite our sustained commitment to financial aid for low- and middle-income students, the burdens of funding education have steadily shifted from public to private sources."
UC Davis : The Future of the Public University -see details and video of previous talks available: here at this link.

At the top of the list is a presentation outta Harvard's "Entrepreneurial Legal Studies".
“Open Access, Cooperation, and Commons: The (Uncertain) Retreat of Possessive Individualism in Networked Society”
