PETITION TO STOP UC REGENTS FROM RAISING TUTION
As you may have heard a proposal has been put forth with the potential to raise tuition at UCSC by up to 5%. The tuition for undergraduate in-state students in the University of California has been $12,192 since the 2011-12 academic year, but that freeze is quickly expiring, and UC students may face yet another tuition increase. We urge students who are against the tuition hikes to sign the petition and express their disapproval.
Consider being a GSA representative from your department! To be a rep, you simply come to one of our meetings, state that you'd like to be a rep for your department and then you'll be confirmed by a vote if no one else is currently representing your department. Reps are given the opportunity to serve on various committees. Serving as a rep comes with a quarterly $100 stipend. Most importantly, the more representation we have in the GSA, the more we can ensure that graduate student voices are being heard on campus.
Departments currently missing grad reps are:
Chemistry & Biochemistry
Digital Arts & New Media
Earth & Planetary Science
Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
History of Consciousness
Technology & Information Management
If you a grad student in one of these departments, please consider getting involved!
