Critical Information on the State Budget and the CSU

California Governor Jerry Brown proposes a $250 million “trigger” cut for the California State University in fiscal year 2012-13.

The trigger hinges on voter approval of a tax initiative on the November 2012 ballot. The cuts will further undermine the mission and quality of the CSU system and will require additional enrollment restrictions that limit the ability of California students to attend.

As a smaller campus, CSU Stanislaus is disadvantaged by a reduced “economy of scale” to absorb the trigger cuts. Further, the cuts risk disrupting the pipeline of educated workers that CSU Stanislaus provides to the region — workers who will play a key role in any economic recovery.

The university must urge flat state funding for the CSU in FY12-13, and we need your help. The legislature is required to pass a balanced FY12-13 budget by June 15, 2012, so it's important to reach out now to your elected representatives and share information with friends and colleagues.
