TO THE CAMPUS COMMUNITY
Dear Colleagues and Students:
The UC Commission on the Future, which has been charged with examining how the University of California can best serve the state in the years ahead and maintain access, quality and affordability, has released preliminary recommendations from its five workgroups on Access and Affordability, Education and Curriculum, Funding Strategies, Research Strategies, and Size and Shape of the UC.
The recommendations can be found at the UC Office of the President website at http://ucfuture.universityofcalifornia.edu. Comments can also be made on any of the recommendations through this link. The UCSB Academic Senate's councils and committees have developed draft responses to the recommendations. You can find their preliminary comments at http://senate.ucsb.edu on the Academic Senate website under "News and Current Issues."
I encourage you to review these working documents about the future of our University.
Henry T. Yang
