The following statement can be attributed to CSU Chancellor Timothy P. White

“The California State University applauds Governor Brown, President pro Tempore de León and Speaker Atkins for standing with the CSU by agreeing to a budget that supports the university’s relentless focus on student success. This investment expands opportunity and access to quality-degree programs, supports hiring more faculty and staff, and enables the university to scale the programs and services that increase degree completion. This investment in CSU’s students, faculty and staff serves the public good as a wise investment in the fabric and future of our state – which depends on a knowledge-based economy to provide social mobility for all Californians.”
