University of California board approves 32 percent student fee increase

November 20, 2009

The University of California Board of Regents approved a 32 percent hike in undergraduate fees on Nov. 19, boosting the average fee by $2,500 next fall.

After a series of deep cuts in state aid, and with state government facing a nearly $21 billion budget gap over the next year and a half, regents said there was no option to higher fees.

Outside the meeting building, hundreds of demonstrators chanted, beat drums and hoisted signs opposing the fee increase while University of California campus police in face shields and California Highway Patrol officers with beanbag-shooting guns stood watch.
