Cal-Berkeley postpones plans for 'global campus' - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

The University of California at Berkeley will 'indefinitely suspend' plans to build a satellite campus designed to attract a stronger presence of international students, and to offer programs with emphasis on global issues. The announcement comes as Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks prepares to resign, and the institution faces a $150 million budget deficit. Officials say funding for the campus is likely to come from private donors and corporate partnerships, but the suspension parallels the system's efforts to build institutional endowments to keep pace with elite universities and other public college systems nationwide. http://www.educationdive.com/news/cal-berkeley-postpones-plans-for-global-campus/425282/
