UC regents approve second tuition hike in eight months - San Jose Mercury News

SAN FRANCISCO -- University of California leaders on Thursday approved the fall term's second tuition increase in the past eight months.

The Board of Regents voted in favor of the 9.6 percent fee hike for both undergraduate and graduate students. The increase comes on top of an 8-percent hike approved by regents in November and will bring annual undergraduate tuition to $11,220.

Need we ask how much of this goes to feed the administrative bloat referenced in the slightly early entry here?

Abuses of public funds at University of California Berkeley. Cal. Chancellor Birgeneau ($500,000 salary) has forgotten that he is a public servant, steward of the public money, not overseer of his own fiefdom. These are not isolated examples: recruits (uses California tax $) out of state $50,000 tuition students that displace qualified Californians from public university education; spends $7,000,000 + for consultants to do his & many vice chancellors jobs (prominent East Coast university accomplishing same 0 cost); pays ex Michigan governor $300,000 for lectures; in procuring a $3,000,000 consulting firm he failed to receive proposals from other firms; Latino enrollment drops while out of state jumps 2010; tuition to Return on Investment drops below top 10; QS academic ranking falls below top 10; only 50 attend Birgeneau all employees meeting; visits down 20%; NCAA places basketball program on probation, absence institutional control.

It’s all shameful. There is no justification for such violations by a steward of the public trust. Absolutely none.

Birgeneau’s violations continue. Governor Brown, UC Board of Regents Chair Lansing must do a better job of vigorously enforcing stringent oversight than has been done in the past over Chancellor Birgeneau who uses the campus as his fiefdom.
