Cal's Organization Effectiveness (OE) cost control doubles tuition
Posted in the Berkeley Forum
#1 Jan 9, 2012
On an all in cost, Birgeneau molded UC Berkeley (UCB) into the most expensive public university. Faculty, chancellor, administrator salaries must reflect California's ability to pay, not what others are paid. Instate tuition consumes 14% of a Californians median family income.
Paying more is not a better university. Chancellor Birgeneau dismissed removing much inefficiency: require faculty to teach more classes, double the time between sabbaticals, freeze vacant faculty/administrator/chancell or positions, increase class sizes, freeze pay and benefits & reform pensions, health costs.
Birgeneau said removing such inefficiencies wouldnt be healthy. Exodus of faculty, chancellors, and administrators: who can afford them?
Californians, Alumni agree it is far from the ideal situation. Birgeneau cannot expect to do business as usual: raising tuition/fees; granting pay raises & huge bonuses during a weak economy that has sapped state revenues, individual income.
Recently, Chancellor Birgeneaus campus police deployed violent baton jabs on students protesting Birgeneaus increases in tuition. The sky above Cal. will not fall when Robert J. Birgeneau ($450,000 salary) is ousted.
