Student Rallies at the BOT
CSU Office of the Chancellor
401 Golden Shore, Long Beach CA 90802
CSU leaders have proposed a tuition increase, and the Board of Trustees will vote on whether to approve this increase on March 22. The BOT does not have to raise tuition, and has the option to stand with students in their fight for a more equitable public higher education system. Join us as we show up to the meeting and take action against the increase:

For the fiscal year 2017-2018, the CSU System predicts it will face incremental expenditures of $346 million dollars. Under Governor Jerry Brown's Funding plan, the CSU System is expecting a total of $152.7 million dollars from the state's general fund. In addition, there will also be increase revenue of $20 million dollars resulting from enrollment growth. These two combined add up to a total of $177.2 million dollars. This leaves the CSU System facing a deficit of $168.8 million dollars. The CSU Board of Trustees is considering three options to address the issue.
A.S.I. has prepared the following release to inform students and to provide context for the discussion about possible avenues of recourse.
