California Governor Gavin Newsom has released his 2020-21 state budget, which proposes $217.7 million in new, ongoing funding for UC. We are grateful for his support.

Budget negotiations between the Governor and Legislature will take place over the next several months, with a final budget being signed by the Governor at the end of June. We hope you’ll join us in speaking out for a strong state budget that allows UC to grow enrollment and enhance degree completion, improve student wellbeing, support critical healthcare services in the Central Valley and Inland Empire, and invest in the next generation of staff, faculty and researchers.

Your voice is powerful, and we’re going to need your help contacting state lawmakers via email, petitions, social media, and phone calls over the next few months to ensure that higher education remains a state budget priority.

Together, we can advance our shared priorities and secure an investment in our most important resource – California’s students. Thank you for your partnership and help.
