    No disrespect intended for affluent foreign students. The more non-Californians admitted to University of California the fewer residents can be. Fall admit rate for residents drops to record low 18%. There was a 43 percent jump in the number of affluent foreign and affluent out-of-state students by public University of California Berkeley.

    Cal. Chancellor Birgeneau ($450.000), Provost Breslauer ($306,000) shed thousands of eligible instate applicants. Residents are replaced by a $50,600 payment from born abroad affluent foreign and affluent out of state students. And, Birgeneau subsidizes affluent foreign and affluent out of state tuition in the guise of diversity while Breslauer Birgeneau double (Harvard College now less costly than Cal.) resident tuition.

    Birgeneau/Breslauer hapless leadership accepts $50,600 tuition to displace California residents (When depreciation of tax funded assets, infrastructure etc, are included (as they should be), out of state and foreign tuition is more than $100,000 and does NOT subsidize resident tuition.

    With the influence of UC Berkeley Chancellor Birgeneau, Provost George Breslauer deployed excessive force by campus police – rammed baton jabs – on students protesting Chancellor’s doubling of resident tuition. Sack (honorably retire) dysfunctional Provost Breslauer. Birgeneau resigned.

    Email a message to UC Board of Regents marsha.kelman@ucop.edu and Calif. State Senators and Assemblymembers.
