New Directions in the Future of UCSC
Matthew Waxman

Matthew, You’re wrong about the 2005 LRDP settlement. It only required UCSC to house 67% of the additional students. That is, the LRDP was projecting an increase in students from 15,000 to 19,500 and the settlement required UCSC to house 67% of the additional 4,500. There are also a bunch of loopholes that allow UCSC to get out of that commitment.

I share your concern about privatizing a public resource. I’m sure UC is doing it in an attempt to get around it’s own intractable bureaucracy that in part accounts for the astronomical housing costs. However, I think the right answer is to reform its bureaucracy rather than privatize.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
