The Daily Californian interviewed UC Regents Chair, Russell Gould, about issues surrounding the pension plan, a hot topic at the UC level these days.
Gould stated some key aspects to note including the matter of determining further fee increases because of the pension problem, after taking into account what kind of response the state gives.
He shared some insight on how the state and UC must work together with funding issues such as pointing out that supporting a long-term fee policy must entail a long-term funding commitment from the state. Gould stated, “This kind of bouncing around from year to year based on what state funding we receive or the kind of economic crisis and state budget crisis we face is a terrible way to set student fees and to set funding for UC.”
