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

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?”

    How about "Return tuition to zero, where it is supposed to be.". Those of us trained in public health know that educational attainment is one of the most important determinants of positive health status. And those of us with MBAs know that a well trained workforce is the engine that keeps capitalism progressing. So, it's a "no brainer".... return the tuition to zero and watch individuals and families do better and watch the economy take off!!

    She should resign now before it is to late. She has no idea what insanity she is getting into. She will soon find that the politics in Washington are mild in comparison to the UC system.
