Faculty leaders take up new CSU landscape

CSU Faculty  Leaders

Faculty leaders from CFA chapters on the 23 California State University campuses gathered in Los Angeles last weekend to examine the new landscape of the CSU.

The CFA Spring Kickoff considered the impact of winning Prop. 30 on the state’s budget and on the CSU. Instead of facing a $250 million cut, the governor has proposed an increase for the system. That opens new possibilities for the CSU, its students and employees including the faculty.

In addition to the improved budget outlook, the arrival of Chancellor Timothy White, the appointment of five new Trustees to the Board and intensified interest in the CSU on the part of the governor all may affect the landscape of our university system.
