Alternative Commission on the Future of the University at UCLA

On May 4th from 5-7 at Humanities 135, faculty, workers, and students will meet together for a public forum to discuss an alternative Commission for the Future of the University. The first hour will consist of presentations outlining specific recommendations, while the second hour will revolve around a democratic selection of the top suggestions. After this meeting, we will present our recommendations to the media and the Office of the President.

The central topics will be enrollment targets, student fees, online education, pension contributions, graduate education, diversity goals, summer instruction, language requirements, budget planning, and funding models.

Speakers will include members from the newly elected Graduate Student Association government, Toby Higbie (History, UCSB), Katherine King (Comparative Literature), Bob Samuels (UC-AFT), Teresa Avendado (AFSCME), Ali Cruz (Law Student), Holly Craig-Wehrle (Undergrad), and a representative of UPTE.

Please come and add your voice to the democratization of the university.
