State budget

Pledge to advocate alongside us this year.

Will you pledge to speak up for a state budget that supports UC?

Budget negotiations between the Governor and Legislature have begun, and now is the time to make sure state leaders understand that a strong partnership with UC benefits all Californians.

Gov. Gavin Newsom just released his 2023-24 state budget, continuing to show his strong commitment to UC. Under his proposal, UC would see a 5 percent budget increase for the second year in a row, a key component of last year’s compact agreement. If approved by the legislature, this state funding would allow the University to expand undergraduate enrollment and hire the next generation of faculty and staff.

Your voice is powerful, and we’re going to need your help contacting state lawmakers over the next few months to ensure that higher education remains a state budget priority!


Federal Partnership

Every day UC creates groundbreaking research, develops new health care solutions, and opens doors for students. None of it would be possible without federal funding.
