The following statement can be attributed to California State University Chancellor Timothy P. White

“Today’s announcement by Governor Brown acknowledges the California State University’s vital mission in serving the students of California. The May Revision supports existing CSU priorities by expanding student enrollments and programs that increase degree completion. The governor’s proposal is an important step towards reinvestment in a well-educated California citizenry and knowledge-based economy. The CSU will redouble its efforts by working with state elected leaders to further prioritize public higher education funding and achieve a final budget that provides appropriate educational opportunity, quality and success to the students of California.”
