Former Chancellor Young Proposes Contract with State to Bolster UC's Finances

Former UCLA Chancellor Charles E. Young outlines how California and the University of California arrived at the current budget crisis, and suggests that the path to economic stability for UC lies in a modified form of privatization on which it already has embarked to some degree.

A UCLA professor emeritus of political science and public policy, Young spoke on "The State of California and Its University" at the 25th annual Bollens-Ries-Hoffenberg Lecture, held on Thursday, April 21, at the Faculty Center. He presented highlights from an article he wrote, "Policy Options for University of California Budgeting," for California Policy Options 2011, published by the Ralph and Goldy Lewis Center.
