UC Commission on the Future Releases Final Report

The final report of the University of California Commission on the Future, convened last year to map out strategies to preserve excellence and access through the state fiscal crisis and beyond, was unveiled today (Dec. 6).

The 20 recommendations endorsed by the commission address five broad categories: teaching and curriculum, undergraduate enrollment and access, research and graduate education, fiscal discipline and administrative reform, and public education and advocacy.

The commission also cited contingency actions that, if the fiscal situation worsens, might be required to sustain a world-class institution crucial to the economic and cultural health of California. The full report, to be presented to UC Regents at a special meeting Dec. 13, is available online [PDF].

A new release about the report is also posted on the UC Office of the President website.
