Students on campus with the words "Grow California Together"

State budget

Ask lawmakers to invest in clean energy and more classrooms at UC!

Join us in asking state lawmakers for critical UC funding.

The University of California urgently needs more classroom and lab space to accommodate students, faculty and staff. It’s also urgent that we accelerate our transition to clean energy as we combat climate change. With a state budget surplus of more than $97 billion, now is the time for lawmakers to invest in these important UC priorities. We’re asking state leaders for $1.6 billion to fund high-priority capital projects that will allow UC to serve more California students and cut greenhouse gas emissions at the same time. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s revised budget proposal includes $100 million for these projects, an important step towards our goal.

Will you ask lawmakers to provide additional investments to expand student capacity and accelerate our push for clean energy across UC? Add your name to our petition to show your support!

With budget negotiations now in the final stretch, it’s urgent that lawmakers see a groundswell of support when we deliver this petition. The simple act of adding your name can make a big difference!

All 10 UC campuses will benefit from this funding, which will support new and renovated classrooms and labs, energy efficiency projects that will help UC become climate neutral by 2025, and important seismic upgrades that protect students, staff, and faculty.
