What do you think? What advice would you give to incoming UC President Janet Napolitano?

By From page A13 | July 14, 2013

Chris Swanson

recent graduate, Davis:

“Remember that her responsibility is to the students, first and foremost. That’s the point.”

Elise Carroll

student, Davis:

“I’d probably rethink their expansion — their 10-year plan to increase enrollment — because registration, for example, already is seeming overcrowded.”

Rabia Jamil

student, Davis:

“I would definitely want to see a decrease in tuition. I (also) feel like at UCs that are research-based, a lot of the professors spend a lot of time on their research, more than teaching.”

David Katz

graduate student, Davis:

“Think long-term, because I feel like a lot of the choices made recently have been quick reactions.”

Noah Barrera

student, Davis:

“I guess the big thing is tuition. It’s getting out of people’s ability to pay, so focus on that.”

Bethany Judson

student, Davis:

“That just because the UCs are constitutionally autonomous, does not mean that the legislators in the Capitol are passing bad legislation. There was a lot of good legislation, but the UCs snubbed their nose. Also, why can’t fees go back down, now they’re getting more funding from the government?”
