UCLA Chancellor Gene Block supports the five-year plan for low, predictable tuition and increased access proposed by the University of California Board of Regents.
“As chancellor of UCLA, my overriding objective has been preserving our world-renowned academic quality and helping keep a UCLA education affordable for Californians in the face of declining state support. Although UCLA is now a much leaner, more flexible and efficient institution, we still face a state funding gap. I join all of my fellow UC chancellors in support of the long-term stability plan for tuition and financial aid that the Board of Regents will consider Nov. 19. The plan calls on the state to fully invest in our students, allowing campuses like ours to put even more funds toward important priorities like smaller class sizes, enhanced student support services and maintaining our robust financial aid program.”
