Californians subsidize the tuition of foreign students in the name of diversity. Chancellor Robert J Birgeneau ($450,000 salary) has doubled instate tuition/fees while replacing Californians qualified for public UC Berkeley (UCB) with a $50,600 foreign student payment.

The need for transparency at Cal. has never been so clear. UCB,# 70 Forbes ranking, is not increasing enrollment. Birgeneau accepts $50,600 foreign students and displaces qualified instate Californians (When amortization of fixed assets funded by Californians are included in foreign and out of state tuition calculations, out of state and foreign tuition would be more than $100,000+ and would NOT subsidize instate tuition).

Californians must act: remove UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert J. Birgeneau.

More recently, the campus police that report to Chancellor Birgeneau deployed violent baton jabs on students protesting Birgeneauís tuition increases. The sky will not fall when Birgeneau and his $450,000 salary are ousted.
