  1. Milan Moravec Says:

    University of California is well known for inept spending of funding: Prop 30, 32. UC Berkeley Chancellor Birgeneau ($450,000), Provost Breslauer ($306,000) pick the pockets of in-state students and their parents clean. Birgeneau’s, Provost’s tuition increases make public Cal. the # 1 ranked most expensive (during the greatest recession of modern times) for in-state students. B & B’s outrageous 14% annual tuition increases (2006 – 20012) illustrates an out of touch, self-serving Cal. senior management.

    Robert J Birgeneau and Provost forget they are public servants, stewards of the public money, not overseers of their own fiefdom. Let’s review how they used the tax dollars.

    Pay ex-politician $300,000 for several lectures; Recruit affluent foreign & affluent out of state students who then displace qualified instate applicants; Spend millions (prominent East Coast university accomplishing same at 0 cost) for OE consultants to remove Chancellor, Provost created inefficiencies but prevent consultants from examining Cal. senior management.
