- Traci Ishigo, senior sociology major, is quoted by the Associated Press and 11 other news agencies June 19, 2012
From the AP:
UC officials want the state to make pension contributions, as it does for the California State University and California Community Colleges systems. But the state, facing its own financial problems, hasn't provided money for UC pensions for more than 20 years. UC Irvine student Traci Ishigo said she also wants the state to help cover the UC's escalating pension costs. "Students shouldn't have to compromise any more on the quality of our education," Ishigo said. "I don't want to see the regents make any decisions where they have to place more burden on the backs of students to cover the rising pension costs."
