The state's massive cuts to the University of California budget have impacted the lives of students, faculty and staff systemwide.
Teachers are facing furloughs and paycuts, and students are set to face their 9th tuition increase in 8 years. Over 225,000 students, and 19,000 faculty call the UC system home.
In this editorial, we discuss the real cost facing us in the future, if we don't act today.
