A report by the UCLA Faculty Association estimates that UC would have $800 million each year if management had grown at the same rate as the rest of the university since 1997.9 $800 million would cover the fees for 100,000 resident undergraduates. UC Davis plans to close one of three low-income cooperative on-campus student housing projects, and plans to use that space to create more administrative offices. We want to know why administrative costs and resources continue to rise at the expense of student accessibility and affordability.<br> - * We think it is unacceptable that in a year when students must seriously consider whether or not they can continue to attend college, the president of the UC has a compensation package of $841,880,10 and the new chancellor of UC Davis is hired with a base salary of $400,000, which is 27% higher than that of her predecessor.11<br> - * The UC Board of Regents consists of 18 members appointed by the governor for 12 year terms, one student regent appointed by the Board of Regents, and 7 non-voting (ex officio) members. Because of this structure, the Regents have no real accountability to students, faculty, or staff. And very few of the Regents even have a background in education.12 For example, Chairman Russell Gould is a former executive of Wachovia Bank, a corporation that directly profits from decreased funding of public education since it profits from an increase in student loans. We believe it is crucial to have accountability from the Regents, real student representation, and UC leaders with backgrounds in education.<br> - * Recent budget choices push resources away from students and education, and toward administrative and for-profit functions of the university. If UC administration continues to move toward a privatized, corporate model, it will be even harder to convince the state and tax payers to invest in the UC as a public education system.<br> - <br> - '''''If you have more information as to how the budget cuts have affected or will affect you and others at UCD, please add the information or post a comment below.'''''</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 25: </td> <td> Line 5: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- =Changes for 2010-2011=</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 30: </td> <td> Line 9: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- * Students are being asked to pay thousands of dollars more in fees than they initially planned.
