UCLA chancellor: budgets and racial diversity biggest challenges - John Morgan, Times Higher Education

UCLA is “facing some significant challenges”, he added. “One challenge is financial. Our budget from the state went from roughly $640 million (£486 million) in 2007 when I arrived to about $400 million two years later.” In that period following the financial crisis – which saw public university budgets across the US hit hard as states slashed spending – the University of California, which sets tuition costs for all the nine campuses in the system, “almost doubled tuition in a very short period of time, with tremendous unrest”, Dr Block said. The annual cost of tuition rose above $10,000 for the first time in 2009 after a controversial 32 per cent rise, with tuition and fees standing at $12,240 in 2015-16 for California resident students. https://www.timeshighereducation.com/news/ucla-chancellor-gene-block-budgets-and-racial-diversity-biggest-challenges
