Master Plan Conference in Sacramento Sept. 26

You are no doubt aware that public higher education in California is founded on the ambitious 1960’s era Master Plan for Higher Education. Unfortunately, this plan was never fully funded by the state, and the ambitions of the plan have been greatly eroded in recent years.

In order to try to raise awareness of the history of California’s Master Plan among educators and policy makers in Sacramento, a coalition of public higher education supporters is holding a one day conference in Sacramento on September 26th. I highly recommend you try to attend this conference if at all possible. Registration is a modest $25. You can let me know you are attending by emailing DFA staff at info@cucfa.org.

Some further information about the conference is below, and the latest details will be available at the conference website.

Sincerely,
Richard Scalettar,
Davis Faculty Association Chair

STRATEGIC PLANNING CONFERENCE: Higher Education for a New Generation

As our public higher education systems raise tuition and accept fewer students in the face of chronic state underfunding, concerned citizens across California know that now is the time to stop the decline of our public colleges and universities. Providing our students with the opportunity to achieve at their highest potential is the surest way to keep our state economically competitive in the decades to come. We invite students, faculty, staff, and all Californians who are concerned about the future of California’s public high education to join us in planning for a brighter future for today’s and tomorrow’s students.

PLEASE JOIN US! Saturday, Sept 26th, 2015 * 8 am to 5 pm (8-9 am is registration) at Capitol Plaza Halls, Temple Ballroom, 1025 9th Street, Sacramento.
