SQE On The Radio / Fee Campaign Update!

SQE was on the radio talking about the latest round of fees at the CSU campuses! Check it out here. It’s only five or so minutes.

You can also read a larger article at the Sacramento Bee. Here’s a blurb:

Student success fees have now been introduced at 12 of the 23 CSU campuses since 2011, as the university has turned to raising tuition and other sources of funding to offset budget cuts. Ranging from $162 per year at CSU San Bernardino State to $630 at San Jose State and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, many of the success fees were implemented through a vote because students wanted to finish their degrees faster.

Criticism began to mount in the past few months, however, as more campuses debated adding or raising their success fees, which come on top of CSU’s $5,742 annual tuition for in-state students and often hundreds of dollars in other facilities, health and activities fees.

CSUS March 4 Rally

Demanding quality, affordable, and accessible public education, an estimated 2,000 students, faculty and people in the community came together in solidarity to fight for public education.   March 4th 2010 marked a historic date as students from grade school to universities voiced their concerns and demands in front of the state Capitol.  Administrators to lawmakers heard the importance of adjusting the priorities to address the needs of the students and faculty and the need to reinvest in public schools and colleges through creative chants, songs and guerrilla theater put together by students and faculty.
