University of California President Yudof and Chancellor Birgeneau push University of California Berkeley farther and farther out of reach for the sons and daughters of Californians. UCB Chancellor Robert J Birgeneau is outspoken on why elite public universities, like Cal, should charge Californians more. With Birgeneaus leadership UCB is more expensive (on an all-in-cost) than private Harvard and Yale. Chancellor Birgeneaus charge more tuition to Californians makes Cal. the most expensive public higher education in our country!
Birgeneau ($450,000 salary) likes to blame the politicians, since they stopped giving him every dollar expected. The Chancellors charge more instate tuition skyrocketed fees by an average 14% per year from 2006 to 2011-12 academic year. If Birgeneau had allowed fees to rise at the same rate of inflation over the past 10 years they would still be in reach of most middle income students. Increasing funding is not Cals solution.
As a public university UCB is to maximize access to the widest number of instate students at a reasonable cost with a mission of diversity and equality of opportunity. Unfortunately Birgeneaus charge more tuition to Californians diminishes the equality and inclusion principles which underlie our state and country. Birgeneaus and Provost George Breslauers ($306,000 salary)charge more instate tuition denies middle income Californians the transformative value of Cals education.
Chancellor Birgeneaus tenure is a sad unacceptable legacy.
