BLOCK’S BILL TO RESTORE LOCAL STUDENT GUARANTEED ADMISSIONS AT SDSU SET FOR HEARING WED. MAY 12

 

 Update: This bill was sent to the suspension file, which likely means it will not win passage this session.

May 11, 2010 (San Diego) – San Diego State University (SDSU) president Stephen Weber sparked campus-wide protests when he announced elimination of guaranteed admissions for local students who meet California State University (CSU) requirements, dashing dreams of a college education for many who can't afford to live away from home.

 

Now Assemblyman Marty Block (D-Lemon Grove) has authored AB 2401, a bill that would mandate that all CSU campuses give priority to local students. The measure is set for hearing tomorrow in the Assembly Appropriations Committee--and backers are seeking public support.
