The following statement can be attributed to Chancellor Timothy P. White, California State University
“The California State University (CSU) is very encouraged by the 2014-15 Budget Blueprint unveiled today by the Speaker and the Assembly Democratic Caucus that prioritizes higher education funding to expand opportunities for students and bolster the quality of educational programs. Each year, the CSU turns away more than 20,000 fully eligible students. With a continued investment in the CSU, the university is poised to serve more students and expand high-impact teaching practices that advance degree completion. The university looks forward to reviewing this proposal in more detail, and is committed to working with the Governor and Legislature through the budget process.”
