SAN DIEGO DIVISION
The systemwide Assembly of the Academic Senate is conducting a referendum among all members of the Senate to decide whether to send forward a Memorial to The Regents. A Memorial is the Senate's only vehicle for making a recommendation to The Regents from the entire Senate membership, which means it is very important for a large proportion of the Senate membership to vote.
This Memorial asks The Regents to endorse one or more specific ballot measures or legislative initiatives that would increase state revenues and/or increase funding for the University of California. As required by systemwide Senate Bylaw 95, each Division conducts its own vote and reports the results to the Assembly Parliamentarian for a final tally.
The San Diego Division will conduct its voting beginning today. You will receive the ballot, a letter to all Senate members from Assembly Chair Robert Anderson and Assembly Parliamentarian Jean Olson, an explanation and procedural history of the proposed Memorial, the Memorial text, and arguments for and against the Memorial via campus mail. To cast your vote, follow the directions included with the ballot and return the ballot to the Academic Senate Office (0002, UCtr 215) by 4:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 17. Information can also be found on the Senate webpage at http://senate.ucsd.edu/
Thank you for putting your views on the record at this time of crisis for the University.
