Re: CS Tuition increase...hmmm
Closing a couple of campuses might be too drastic but I think merging a few with bigger, better run campuses might work. For example, Long Beach could easily absorb Dominguez Hills. So many duplicative programs between the two schools which happen to be 13 miles apart. You could save so much money by streamlining the administration. I think you could do the same by merging struggling Sonoma State with either San Francisco or Sacramento State and Channel Islands with Northridge.
declining enrollment, costs going up, a valid question is should the CS close down a campus or 2 or 3.
Bakerfield has been stagnant, albeit one could argue the Valley has been where growth in California continues
Cal State Channel Islands might not have been a good decision. Students hate it. NOrthridge is the closest, given between UCSB & NOrthridge
Was Cal State Monterey Bay needed? at least students like it and not remote like CSCI
they tried to do a make-over calling Humboldt a Polytechnic, lol, which is nothing more than a new paint job, it's not really a Polytechnic and never was. but that is how the State seems to think nowadays
have to wonder about the ability of those leading our State as to their ability to make tough decisions - don't close down some Cal States, that might make it tougher for some.
Bake should have never been added to teh Big West, a decision of leadership that is Least Common Denominator thinking
so they'll raise fees, nope they won't cut back on majors that feed political ideologies, ....mush thinking will prevail
I'd close down Cal State Channel Islands to begin with, then maybe Bake or Cal State East Bay, will they cut admin by 10% as an option since enrollment is down 5%?? hmmm
Jucos are struggling in places for students - of course it's hard for our State to admit to any structural issues and facing them as a solution, better for the Govenor to complain about Florida than address issues first in California
