California budget plan would add 500 full-time faculty
November 05, 2013
A budget proposal under consideration by the California State University's Board of Trustees would add 500 new faculty positions for high-demand subjects, including geography. “There is a commitment now to build the tenure-track workforce, and given that many faculty are reaching the end of their careers, it’s not a moment too soon,” said Lillian Taiz, president of the Cal State Faculty Association. The plan also includes funding for 70 new academic advisors to help students meet graduation requirements more quickly.
