Student Success Fees at CSU and A review at SJSU, more.

see: Budget Review Slams Athletics, Administration - Spartan Daily
Are athletics part of 'excellence and technology' fees?

If the CSU administration has spent this kind of $$$$$ on athletics- going forward, how can the faculty 'partner with the admin.' to ask the state for more $$$$$ ?

“Over a five year period, the (CSU) system lost 30 percent and San Jose State lost almost 45 percent,” Bunsis said. “There is no doubt that San Jose State has gotten the short end of the stick in terms of the state operating appropriations from the state versus the other CSU’s.” --that sounds kinda like how the UC Regents talk about what they wanna say in May in Sacto, right?

Please see University Diaries on other excerpts, context - but to be clear this is described as an independent review requested by the SJSU California Faculty Association- not an audit or state audit.

Links to the Bunsis report, background etc.- who knows where those are?!
