ACADEMIC SENATE MEMBERS
First, I want to thank all of you who have closely followed and contributed to the recent discussion concerning the University of California's fiscal emergency. Your participation in this conversation has helped to shape the course of events in many positive ways.
Second, I would like to alert you to the announcement by President Yudof this morning concerning his plan for furlough/salary reduction which will be formally presented to the Board of Regents next week for their approval.
This document can be found at:
This plan has been substantially modified from the three budget options proposed by President Yudof and UCOP a few weeks ago. This latest proposal has been responsive to some, but not all, of the many comments that were received.
I urge you to carefully examine this latest document as it will have a profound impact on the University of California, and on our own campus, for many years to come.
