New UCLA Civil Rights Project Papers: “The CSU Crisis and California’s Future”

The UCLA Civil Rights Project has put together a series of research papers on “The CSU Crisis and California’s Future” to examine the impact of funding cuts on the California State University system from various angles, including the impact on student access to financial aid and on the faculty’s ability to deliver a quality education.

Diverse magazine reports on one paper that finds CSU students are working well in excess of 15 hours a week, the point at which studies decline. http://diverseeducation.com/article/15728/

The Project will host a Briefing Roundtable about the findings for higher ed policy makers on June 15 at 1:30 pm in the Large Conference Room (LL3 in the basement) at the UC Center, 1130 K Street in Sacramento. Faculty members are welcome to attend.
