Legislature adopts budget making deep cuts in UC

The 2003-04 state budget adopted by the California Legislature will lead to deep cuts in non-instructional programs at the University of California, a 30 percent student fee increase, the UC system’s first instance of borrowing to cover regular operations since the early 1990s, and a one-year delay in the opening of UC Merced. The budget also provides no state funding for salary increases for faculty and staff.. "This is very serious news and a challenge to our future aspirations," said UCSC Chancellor M.R.C. Greenwood.
