UC audit: Napolitano must not dismiss accurate critique
http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/2016/mar/30/university-california-audit/

"Howle has won a national reputation as a strong watchdog — not as a headline hunter. That’s why it was troubling to see University of California President Janet Napolitano dismiss Howle’s 116-page audit criticizing how UC has responded to budget problems over the past decade.

The analysis makes a persuasive case that UC officials pushed through big hikes in tuition and student fees without first making a good-faith effort to contain costs."

"The audit was requested a year ago by Assemblymember Mike Gipson. On Tuesday, Assemblymember Gipson posted on Facebook, “I’m thrilled that I did it. But I’m embarrassed and upset this audit has revealed this tremendous disparity between residents and nonresidents.”

He added, “It’s a form of discrimination against California students that UC would accept a lower standard for nonresidents, but maintain a higher one for Californians.”

“My reaction is utter disgust,” he said. “I’m going to use a harsh word, and the word is discrimination. We are disenfranchising California students.”"

and then,

"UC Davis was among those who “increased their individual campus enrollment targets for nonresidents at a faster rate than their targets for residents. These two procedural changes satisfied the university’s goal: In fiscal year 2014–15 the university generated $728 million from the supplemental tuition that nonresidents paid—a growth of $403 million, or 124 percent, from fiscal year 2010–11.”"
