"On campus, the response has been akin to a shrug. Students and professors in Berkeley and UCLA’s engineering departments say the sharp increase of nonresidents in recent years has led to few noticeable differences in their classes and jobs, and it’s a rare topic of discussion.

“We are the most apolitical part of the campus. We are stubbornly ignorant of the politics of anything,” said Jeff Eldredge, a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at UCLA.

The university handled the financial downturn “really well,” he added. “We accept that the cost of doing that was we had to change the makeup of the students.”"


--There was also some scrutiny of the engineering deans travel and campaign budget for international outreach to potential applicants came up in Sacto and at Regents meetings.
