Student Voices - Add Your Voice
Public higher education in California continues to face unprecedented cuts. The Board of Trustees of the California State University is seeking to reverse the trend. At their November meeting, the Trustees adopted a budget for fiscal year 2012-13 that will ask the state to restore $333 million to the CSU. The Board also approved a tuition fee increase for fall 2012 of $498 per year for undergraduate students to offset the diminishing state support for the CSU. However, if state lawmakers fund the CSU’s requested budget restoring the $333 million, then the 9 percent tuition increase may be rescinded.
SF State is working hard to generate support for higher education. The University has contacted alumni and parents and urged them to join the effort. But the most influential voices are those of our students. Please, speak out and join SF State in this effort.
