University of California, San Diego

June 6, 1994
Dear UCSD Colleagues:
Because of the expected low voter turnout at tomorrow's
Primary Election, and the critical importance of Proposition 1C
to UCSD, I urge you to carefully consider the impact of this
Proposition on UCSD, and to vote.
If passed, Proposition 1C will provide $900 million in
funding for facilities at California's public colleges and
universities. Campuses in San Diego County will receive
nearly $14.4 million in 1994/95. The majority of this money,
nearly $11 million, is earmarked for UCSD, to fund
construction and renovation of buildings on the central
campus, at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and at the
UCSD Medical Center, Hillcrest. Such renovations are
critically needed to make UCSD buildings seismically sound,
and ensure the safety of our employees and students.
Opponents to Proposition 1C contend that students should bear
the entire cost of their education, including the cost of
facilities. Proponents say that Proposition 1C is critical
to sustaining quality in the Community College, California
State University, and University of California systems.
