Some More CA Higher Ed Leg. Moves - April Edition, and a bit more.

Daily Cal: State Assembly Subcommittee Holds Hearing On UC Enrollment Issues
includes comments from some new UCOP leadership and then: UC Berkeley doctoral student Charlie Eaton, who spoke at the hearing, encouraged the university to restore in-state enrollment rates, which he said is unlikely to happen unless the university is “required to do so by the state budget.”

He also said the university is “constantly under pressure to compete with wealthy private institutions like Stanford.” According to Eaton, Stanford University froze undergraduate enrollment at about 1,700 students, the majority of which are out-of-state, while also doubling non-hospital spending per student.

“While Stanford is among the most extreme cases, exponential growth in endowment financed spending at the wealthiest institutions has unleashed unprecedented levels of spending to lure top faculty and students away from institutions like UC,” Eaton said during the hearing.

Restoring the university’s in-state admission rates, Eaton said, could “further strengthen public support for providing new, dedicated revenue for building on UC’s greatness.”
