Alternative Commission on Future of UC Convening at UCLA


 On May 4th from 5-7pm at Humanities 135, faculty, workers, and students will meet together to discuss an alternative Commission for the Future of the University.  The first hour will consist of presentations outlining specific recommendations, while the second hour will revolve around a democratic selection of the top suggestions.  After this meeting, we will present our recommendations to the media and the Office of the President. 

The central topics will be enrollment targets, student fees, online education, pension contributions, graduate education, diversity goals, summer instruction, language requirements, budget planning, and funding models.  Please come and add your voice to the democratization of the university.

Speakers include: Toby Higbie (History, UCSB), Katherine King (Comparative Literature), Bob Samuels (UC-AFT), Teresa Avendado (AFSCME), Ali Cruz (Law Student), Holly Craig-Wehrle (Undergrad), and representative of the GSA (Sonia Diaz) and UPTE.
