What will it take to make the University of California’s budget process more transparent? On the January 29th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the UC budget. California Governor Jerry Brown and UC President Janet Napolitano are clashing over Napolitano’s request for a significant tuition hike. Meantime, University doctors have walked off the job for the first time ever to protest what they call unfair labor practices. What will it take to get the UC system to provide information about its finances? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you. 

Guests:

Chris Newfield, professor of literature and American studies at UC Santa Barbara, author of Unmaking the Public University
