 PETITION TO STOP UC REGENTS FROM RAISING TUTION

http://ucsa.org/action-alerts/sign-our-petition/

 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:

Anthropology

Chemistry & Biochemistry

Computer Engineering

Digital Arts & New Media

Earth & Planetary Science

Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

Economics

Education

History

History of Consciousness

MCD Biology

Music

Technology & Information Management

Visual Studies

Theater Arts

Science Communication

 

If you a grad student in one of these departments, please consider getting involved!
