UC Regents to tackle Brown’s budget proposal at UCSD meeting

By City News Service

The University of California Board of Regents is scheduled to tackle Gov. Jerry Brown’s budget cutting proposal during meetings Wednesday at UC San Diego.

The regents are in the middle of three days of meetings at the La Jolla campus.

Brown has proposed to cut the budgets of the UC and California State University systems by $500 million each to close a fiscal shortfall. The plan needs to be passed by the Legislature.

In response, UC President Mark Yudof ordered the chancellors of UC campuses to come up with plans for meeting budget reduction targets within six weeks.

    UC Chancellor Birgeneau spending is out-running the increases in student tuition. UC Berkeley–one of the top universities in the nation, home to some of the finest professors, graduating some of the brightest students–can’t figure out how to save money. No joke. UC Berkeley spent $3 million plus expenses to hire an out-of-state auditing firm to help them find ways to reduce spending.
    According to the Contra Costa Times, October 10, 2009, “When UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert Birgeneau was confronted with the $150 million challenge, he gave the matter deep thought, turned his focus eastward to the Boston-based consulting firm Bain & Co. and agreed to pay $3 million over the next two years for someone else to solve the problem.
    “We [the Times] never attended business school, but we’re pretty sure that one of the definitions of financial crisis is spending $3 million on consultants to tell you how to get by with $150 million less than you thought you had.”
