Legislators’ support for CFA Fight for Five continues to grow

Senator Dr. Richard Pan is the latest legislator to send a letter to CSU Chancellor Tim White, urging him to invest in faculty salaries.

He is among 16 California lawmakers who have sent letters to the chancellor over the past several weeks.

“Now is the time for California State University to work toward adequate funding of the university’s core mission, educating the next generation of Californians. This year, the Legislature budgeted an additional $97 million to CSU with the intent that these funds be invested in improving the quality of education for our students,” Pan wrote.

“As a former professor and director of an educational program, I understand the vital role faculty play in not only teaching students course content, but mentoring them and being role models so students are truly educated.”
