As you know, on March 4th, rallies are planned across the state in
support of making higher education a state priority. UC President
Mark Yudof and other university leaders will join students at the
state capital in visiting legislators that day. On April 27, UC, CSU
and California community colleges will sponsor a joint advocacy day
in Sacramento. This is an critical collective endeavor that deserves
our support and participation.
If you plan to attend rallies in Los Angeles or Sacramento that day
and will not meet your classes, please inform your chair so that a
department representative can distribute any materials. And I ask
chairs and directors not to penalize their colleagues who choose to
attend these advocacy events.
