Financial Aid as the bandage for future Tuition Hikes and other things

Daily Cal: Napolitano said even if tuition increases, student financial aid is robust and not anticipated to change, and she pointed to the 55 percent of California-resident UC students who pay no tuition.

[UCOP is the equivalent of a campus -that's what Napolitano said about UCOP when she talked about Global Food Initiative rollout and the reinstatement of ANR there,

and Senior UCOP officials are considered the 'equivalent' of Chancellors-- those were the terms used by the committee chair at the July UC Regents meeting when UCOP officials received raises during comp committee...

But Regent Blum made the point to CA Senate Rules committee that 'we don't teach anything in Oakland-OP'-- he has also said that several times at UC Regents meetings for years.]

and, wait for it: --
"She spoke specifically about the efforts to address sexual assault on campus, mentioning that these kinds of student-centered movements do not begin in the UC Office of the President.

“We will do all we can from UCOP to support education efforts, to support training, to support awareness — and cultural sensitivity awareness in particular — but we cannot do this from Oakland,” Napolitano said. “This really has to be grassroots among the students themselves with the support of Oakland.”

(That means UCOP threw the hot potato back at the campuses. The question of 'What is UCOP?' -still yet to be answered.)

Then there's attaching reporting of Campus Assaults to the Cal Grant Program --see Daily Cal

Gatto introduced the legislation after several high-profile universities, including the University of Southern California and UC Berkeley, were accused by students of mishandling sexual assault cases such as by allegedly underreporting the number of incidents to appear safer.

“This isn’t just a women’s issue, and we can’t keep viewing it through that lens,” said co-author of the bill Assemblymember Bonnie Lowenthal in an emailed statement. “All of us expect our college campuses to be safe places for students, and yet when it comes to preventing sexual assault, they’re dropping the ball.”
