Did you know … 

  • That UCI will need to cut $54 million from its operating budget for the 2011-2012 school year?  That’s the equivalent of one year of financial aid for 3,865 undergrads. 
  • That the UC Regents are considering a 16% increase in fees each year until 2016, raising undergraduate tuition to $22,068 by 2015? 
  • That these costs come in part from a 76% increase in administrators, “professionals,” and managersover the last ten years, with only a 24% increase in spending for what affects students most — faculty and instructors?  
  • That Student Loan debt now tops $1 trillion?

The Budget Crisis affects not just individuals, but entire UCI communities - and the student groups that support them.
