June 27, 2013
The following statement can be attributed to Chancellor Timothy P. White, California State University
“This budget officially begins the state’s reinvestment in higher education and the California State University. This wise choice by the Governor and legislature will further aid California’s economic recovery. While this is an important step in the right direction, additional efforts are still needed to help meet the unprecedented demand to attend a California State University campus. We continue to work with our elected officials and all stakeholders on further restoration of access and increases in student success. We look forward to continued engagement on appropriate and meaningful ways to measure and be accountable for this critical work.”
