Know the History: UC Was Free

AFFORDABILITY AND FEES The 1960 Master Plan reaffirmed California's prior commitment to the principle of tuition-free education to residents of the State. However, the 1960 Master Plan did establish the principle that students (as well as faculty and staff) should pay fees for auxiliary costs like dormitories, parking, and recreational facilities rather than the State. Because of state general fund reductions in the 1980s and 1990s, fees were increased and used for instruction at UC and CSU, effectively ending the no-tuition policy. However, these fee increases were accompanied by substantial increases in student financial aid.
California Master Plan For Higher Education (Summary)

Average UC Undergraduate Resident "Fees" (inflation-adjusted, in 1960 dollars)

As of 2010-2011, undergrads may pay nearly 8 times as much as 50 years ago.

During that time, real wages have decreased for almost everyone, which further compounds this problem. The public is being squeezed out of public services.


Undergraduate Enrollment

It's gone steadily up.


State Funding for UC per Undergraduate Student (in 1960 dollars)

With the large cuts expected, the state may spend about one third as much as it did 50 years ago.

Site Notes

Salary data are identical to those from public records requests by the San Francisco Chronicle. The Chronicle described the 2005 data as follows, which probably applies to later data as well:

In addition to salaries, total pay includes overtime, bonuses, housing allowances, relocation allowances, administrative stipends, revenue sharing and more than a dozen other types of cash compensation. It does not include health or retirement benefits.
The Sacramento Bee explains the numbers further (paraphrased):
Results are the actual amounts paid to workers during the year, according to the UC system. Since this data looks back in time -- it has to for overtime to show up -- those who worked only part of the year will see their actual earnings for the year, not how much they will eventually make over 12 months. Gross pay includes overtime, bonuses, housing allowances, sick leave payout, vacation payout and multiple other forms of cash compensation. Some workers promoted toward the end of the year will see their old job titles listed here.
Unfortunately, some errors do exist, and have been acknowledged by UC:

Thank you for the information you supplied on possible errors in the way that earnings were summarized in the Calendar Year 2007 and 2008 UC salary data. We have looked at the program that was used for those years and have learned that earnings for employees with the exact same name at the same location were indeed added together under only one employee name and title. We have modified the program so that this will not occur when we produce the 2009 calendar year data. I appreciate your help in identifying this error and apologize for the inaccurate data that was provided.
- Karla Holmberg, Information Resources and Communications, UC Office of the President

You asked whether corrected versions of past systemwide earnings reports will be done. Because the public is most interested in recent earnings for current employees, and the error that you found affected less than 0.5 % of the employees in the report, corrected versions of past reports will not be done.
- Stella Ngai, Director, Public Records and Information, UC Office of the President

Some examples of the errors:

2007–2010 data represent their respective calendar years. 2006 is actually fiscal year 2005-2006, 2005 is fiscal year 2004-2005, and 2004 is fiscal year 2003-2004. Explanation: These are the reports that UCOP has made freely available.

"Extra Pay" is the amount between base and gross, excluding overtime pay.

Data include employee pay that may not be affected by the proposed furlough plan (e.g. full federal grant).
