Budget Fight Back Meetings: Updated Schedule

The California Faculty Association (CFA) has released an updated schedule for the campus Budget Fight Back Meetings. CFA says:

The CSU community, a community that has been divided on many issues in recent history, has joined together for the most important fight it has ever faced: protecting the future of California. The Governor proposes to cut $386 million from the CSU budget for the 2008/09 academic year at a time when the economy is lagging, businesses are desperate for skilled workers, the State's infrastructure needs massive improvements, and disadvantaged and middle-class students are finding it harder and harder to afford a college education.

Faculty, students, staff, and the Administration know that the CSU is the solution to our State’s economic challenges, not the problem. The CSU educates the State’s skilled workforce, graduates the majority of minority students in California, and contributes over $7 billion to the State’s economy. Cuts to the CSU would force the system to turn away students, hike student fees yet again, eliminate classes, lay off teachers and increase class sizes. In other words, cuts to the CSU will further damage the economy.
