Students on campus with the words "Grow California Together"

State budget

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

This is our last chance to influence state budget negotiations. Are you in?

Right now, state leadership and the Governor are in the final days of negotiating a 2022 budget agreement, and we need to make sure UC advocates have a voice at the table. Will you ask them to make critical investments in UC? With a state budget surplus of more than $97 billion, now’s the time to support higher education.

This is one our last opportunities to influence the budget outcome and sending a tweet is one of the highest impact actions you can take. It will take less than 1 minute, and we already have a tweet ready for you to review!

This funding will allow UC to:

  • Boost resources to help more students achieve academic success, as well as expand college access and affordability for students and families across the state.

  • Repair aging buildings, increase energy efficiency, and add more classrooms and labs.

  • Support climate-focused research, innovation, and workforce development in California.

We’re also asking lawmakers to provide additional funding to increase access to UC for Californians, make critical seismic upgrades, and advance the university’s transition to clean energy. 

Thank you for standing up for UC and for working with us to help grow California together.
