New CSU Chancellor Requests 10% Reduction in State-Funded Portion of His Salary

View a Printer-friendly version of this page

From Incoming CSU Chancellor Timothy P.  White:

Dear Colleagues,
 
Thank you for your letter offering the Chancellorship of the California State University. I whole heartedly accept your offer to serve our State. I do so because of my deep passion and interest in the mission of the CSU to advance California's future.
 
As I reflect on our times, I respectfully request a 10% reduction in the state-funded portion of the salary that you offered. I believe this request is what is best for the California State University – its faculty, staff, students, and leadership.
 
Despite the passage of Proposition 30, there remain grave economic issues to solve in California and the California State University. Indeed, the success of Proposition 30 was the voice of the voters and taxpayers of California to start to reinvest in education.
 
I also recognize that Californians expect me to properly steward these resources. Consequently, as I join the faculty, staff and students who have experienced cuts, salary freezes, and increased fees, I too must do my part. This is the basis of my request to reduce my own compensation to contribute to the rebuilding of this great university.
 
By changing the dialogue on my compensation I hope to send a clear signal to the public-at-large, elected officials, the business community, and families of current and future students that public higher education matters to all of us, and that we each must play a part in the rebuilding effort. Working together we must find ways to innovate, sustain excellence, decrease time to earn degrees, and have degrees that have renewed meaning for tomorrow's economy and social mobility.
 
Our time is a transformative - and precarious- moment for the University and the state. By joining together with our faculty, staff and students as we face the challenges and opportunities that lay before us, we will succeed.
 
To do so will require the relentless pursuit of new relationships with the public and private sector, as well as among all members of the University community. These relationships will reflect the reality of the environment we are in, and create greater opportunities for student, faculty and staff success in the future.
 
Sincerely,

Timothy P.  White


California State University Rolls Back Tuition Fees to 2011-12 Levels

View a Printer-friendly version of this page

The Proposition 30 ballot initiative was approved by voters in the November 6, 2012 election. As a result, the California State University will implement the tuition fee contingency plan as previously approved by the Board of Trustees. The California State University will roll back tuition fees to 2011-12 fee levels, retroactive to the fall 2012 term. For further information regarding tuition fees, please visit the following website: http://www.calstate.edu/budget/.

The applicable reduction in tuition fees and graduate business professional fee for fall 2012 and winter 2013 at Cal State L.A. will be calculated and a credit will be posted to your account GET. The credit may be applied to any balance due on your account. Any balance remaining as a result of this credit adjustment will be refunded to you no later than December 21, 2012.

Any applicable financial aid adjustment for 2012-13 will be reflected on your student award no later than December 21, 2012. Depending on the details of an individual’s financial aid package, the fee reduction may be matched by an equal reduction in a financial aid grant, in which case no refund will be due to the student. You may receive further communication regarding your specific financial aid status from the Financial Aid Office.

The fastest, most convenient way to receive your refund is through our direct deposit program. We highly encourage you to enroll in the direct deposit program if you have not already done so. Enrollment instructions for direct deposit can be found at: http://www.calstatela.edu/univ/sfinserv/dirdep.php

Please be sure to regularly monitor your self-service account on GET for the fee adjustments.

If you have any questions regarding your student account, please contact Student Financial Services at 323-343-3630. For Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) regarding the revised 2012-13 Academic Year Tuition Fee Rates in response to the passage of Proposition 30: http://www.calstatela.edu/univ/sfinserv/prop30passage_faq.php

    What is the Use of Facilities Committee?

    All major events on campus (outside of the University-Student Union) must be vetted by the Use of Facilities Committee. The Use of Facilities Committee meets every Wednesday at 2:00pm. The location is announced prior to the meeting date. Representatives from each of the service areas attend this meeting to discuss the event and the needs of the group. The University representatives are from:  

    • Athletics
    • Facilities Services
    • Parking
    • Public Safety
    • Environmental Health & Safety
    • Risk Management
    • Golden Eagle Hospitality
    • ITS
    • Public Affairs
    • University-Student Union

    The meeting usually generates questions, concerns, and suggestions to ensure that a group’s event will be successful and well organized. The committee chair, Susan E. Tsuji, will recommend all organizations that are planning an event attend a meeting well in advance of their event date. If additional work needs to be done on the part of the organization, this will give them ample time to get more information or solidify the details of their event.
