The undersigned Faculty, Students, Staff and Alumni of the University of
California object strongly to changing our current Master Plan. The University of California should lead the nation in holding strongly to the principle of affordable and accessible public higher education for all deserving students. Only the restoration of public funding can guarantee the educational freedom and creativity on which technological and economic innovation depend.  We urge the State Assembly to poll and consult thoroughly with UC’s students and employees, as well as the general public. Polls show that a strong majority of Californians support affordable, accessible public education, with good reason: the University of California is the best financial investment our state ever made. Its work
contributed crucially to the prosperity of our Golden Age, and by
educating Californians capable of achieving financial success, continues to support our tax revenues. It can, once again, be the chief engine of our economic recovery if its core commitment to liberal arts education is sustained. Can our state afford to reinvest in accessible public education?  No mistake about it:  we can’t afford NOT to.
