“This is a challenging budget year for California, and we appreciate the way in which Governor Newsom and the Legislature have navigated tough decisions. At the University of California, we are grateful for the steadfast support of the Governor and the Legislature for UC students. We will continue to work hard to achieve our shared objectives with the state, focusing on expanding opportunities for students, finding new ways to support them in their studies, and building inroads to an ever more diverse faculty. We will work with the Governor and the Legislature to ensure that we continue to strive for these objectives in future years. An investment in the University of California is an investment in California’s economic growth, socioeconomic mobility, and innovative research to meet the world’s growing challenges.”
