The following is a message from President Yudof in response to Gov. Brown's proposed budget, released yesterday.
January 10, 2011
I wanted to reach out to each of you personally today to share the news that the Governor's proposed budget for the 2011-12 fiscal year includes deep cuts to the University of California. While this news is not a surprise given the state's financial crisis, I recognize that it means additional sacrifice for all members of the UC community, who have already sacrificed much.
You are the heart and soul of this University, and it will take all of us, working together, to find a way to meet these cuts while still maintaining the core academic and research mission. I will share with you more specific budget information as we get it and to seek your participation as we work through this difficult situation centrally and on the campuses. Clearly, it's time for us to engage Californians in a discussion of exactly what UC means to the future of this state, and thus I am forwarding you the below response to the Governor's budget I have issued.
Mark G. Yudof
