Defend the University!
We call on Chancellor Yang to represent the entire campus and the community at the upcoming Regents’ meeting.
We want you to speak for the campus on these 4 matter:
1) No decision regarding cuts or furloughs at the July meeting—a moratorium on any major financial decisions.
2) No emergency powers for President Yudof—resist any move to declare an emergency or increase his powers.
3) Represent the interests of every constituency: students, non-unionized staff, unionized staff, lecturers, researchers, faculty and administrators.
4) Demand that the UCOP and the Regents begin an open and transparent process with the goal of defending not defunding the university.
